In 1Corinthians chapter 13, if you substitute the word 'charity' with the word 'love'.(which is correct according to the original Greek), you'll notice the attributes of love. In this chapter all the qualities of love are to do with relations with people. 
    May love's blessings be always around you! 
John 14:23 ".....If a man loves me he will keep.(original Greek is 'guard from escape or loss').my words.(they're important to him, just like you take seriously the words of one who may be dear to you).and my Father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him." 1John 3:18,19 "My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth and shall assure our hearts before him." 

1John 2:10 "He that loves his brother abides in the light and there is none occasion of stumbling.(original Greek is 'to place by accident or design, something in front of another that causes him difficulty').in him." Romans 13:10 "Love worketh no ill to his neighbour; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."
    Love is the key to a smoother life.
    A paraphrase of this verse from the original Greek after comparing various translations – 'He who is loving his brother, remains in the light and there is in him no ability to cause another to stumble'.
    When you love, you can't do anything unloving and as James.(James 3:10-12).shows here, by not doing what you can to love, you're actually cursing the other. When you love, you can be sure that you are unendingly in the will of God.

The way of war is the way of death -Jeremiah 21:8.
    The way to war.(and why people steal).comes from a feeling of lack; one doesn't steal unless he feels lack in some area. Being in Christ.(what 'Christ' means).precludes the 'need' to steal, to cheat, to gain unfair advantage over others -2Peter 1:3; 2Corinthians 3:5; 9:8; 1:20
    People steal for themselves – no effective feelings of concern for those who may need help -Ephesians 4:28 "Let him that stole steal no more; but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth." We exist.(or, should).for the welfare of others.
    The way to peace is found in God -Romans 3:11-18; Isaiah 59:8; Luke 1:79
    In Christ there is no lack. James 4:1-3 "From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? You lust.(original is "desire for pleasures" {nothing wrong with having desires}, however lust carries with it the connotation of excessive {Christ is not number one in the heart and mind} desire to selfishly have things {Mark 4:19} to elevate ourselves, to make us greater in the eyes of others, to satisfy ourselves even with harmful things. Selfishness always produces heartaches in life, and in this are "deceitful lusts"; deceitful in that, God is left out of the picture. God is concerned about others, and gave Himself for the world).and have not. You kill.(hate is equal to murder).and desire.(original is "affected to the point of burning" or, 'just got to have it').to have and cannot obtain. You fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not.(a selfishly minded person stubbornly wants to 'do it his own way'). You ask, and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may consume it upon your lusts.(no caring for others here)." John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer.(includes other than physical murder – he desires to get you into corruption to destroy you and others any way he can).from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it." 
    And he pumps you and others every chance he gets.(and many you give him), to get others against you, part of his master plan to get you to this point.
    Selfishness dismisses concerns over others. Take for example pirated software. Those who steal it, give no thought, or if they do give some thought, then they just don't care about the many hours over many months and even years it took sometimes many programmers to develop a good software product.
    Programmers too, have kids at home that need good times, clothes, hockey equipment, etc., and stealing from them just hurts. 
    Many people in the software company are there.(secretaries, shippers, etc.).to assist the company in making a profit, so they can keep their jobs and live their lives. Their livelihoods depend on software sales. So companies send out robots to search for embedded codes in their products, to see who may be stealing and using these illegally copied products. Your name and/or location can easily be tracked. Why get yourself a bad name? If you can't afford it, consider the many free alternatives out there.-...continues
