    Mark 12:31
    And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    I am a social person. I like to work together with people. Both Norwegian and from all over the world. I have more foreign friends than Norwegian is seems. I have Muslim students and I love them.

I listened and was polite, but I was getting more and more angry with him. "That kind of micro-management!", I thought to my self, "It is so typical of him. I rather quit my job than accepting his need of control!" I was so angry and upset, I called my co-worker and told her he was coming. She became upset, too.

  3. Putting on the armor of God
