And now these three remain:  faith, hope, and love.  But the greatest of these is love.  
1Corinthians 13:13 

A virtue is a holy habit; it is a behavior showing high moral standards.
One of the strongest virtues is kindness.  It is what we will focus on this quarter.

A kind mouth multiplies friends, and gracious lips prompt friendly greetings.  Sirach 6:5
Kind words are like honey--Sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.  Proverbs 16:24

"Count the day lost in which you have not tried to do something for someone else."
