Verse of The Day
“E nga hoa aroha, ki te mea i penei te aroha o te Atua ki a tatou, he tika ano hoki kia aroha tatou tetahi ki tetahi. Kahore he wa i kite ai tetahi i te Atua. Ki te aroha tatou tetahi ki tetahi, e noho ana te Atua i roto i a tatou, kua rite pu ano tona aroha i roto i a tatou.” (1 John 4:11-12)
