Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion….
Encouragement, consolation, and fellowship are accompanied by affection and compassion. Affection is within and is expressed through compassion. An affectionate person will do compassionate deeds.
