The Apostle Paul writes at the end of chapter 2 in 1 Thessalonians,

“For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? Indeed, you are our glory and joy.”

The people of faith are diamonds in the rough. We can be pretty rough no doubt, but when we love each other, we get rich quick.
Who are you going to love this year?

Looking forward to the joy of seeing you all this Sunday,
