“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;” (Rom. 12:10)
One of the great benefits of the church is the love shown between members. This type of love describes the mutual love of parents and children as well as husbands and wives (kindly affectionate). Brotherly love is the type of love between siblings and in this sense our brothers and sisters in Christ. We should be showing honor (esteem; respect) more and more toward each other. There is a great elevating and growth seen in mutual respect for the brethren in this verse.
Indeed, we should all let brotherly love continue (Heb. 13:1). Brotherly love is one of a symphony of Christian graces that rings out glory to God (2 Pet. 1:7). God teaches us to love one another (1 Thes. 4:9). This love must be genuine, sincere, and without hypocrisy (1 Pet. 1:22). Like Abram said to Lot, we do not want strife (quarrels) to be between us because we are brethren (Gen. 13:8). May we all increase in our love of the brethren.
