And as for you, may the Lord make you increase and overflow in love toward each other, indeed, toward everyone, just as we do toward you;
If you read through to the following verse, it seems to suggest that the overflowing love is a seal of salvation. Perhaps it is only an evidence of salvation and the consequential transformation of character in the believer. Regardless, if we want to be godly, we must emulate the powerful attribute of Divine Love. What does that look like? How do we love everyone? Does everyone include non-believers? Those are questions for you to wrestle with, but I suspect that peace, constancy, joy and compassion are signs that you are channeling godly love into your life. Life has its travails, but you can choose to elevate them and bless the Almighty no matter what befalls you. You can choose to approach difficult situations and people with positivity and love.
