It is good in the new year instead of complaining about the past life; be thankful No one should do evil to anyone for evil. Rather, constantly strive for goodness with each other and with all people. What Paul means by these words is that instead of retaliating for the bad deeds of others, he should return evil with good. Instead, it is better to carry each other's burdens in the leading year; Do not burden yourself. Because our life is like the shadow of a tree that passes. Without faith there would be no life. Man can receive eternal life only through faith in Christ.
