John 15:13-15
Greater love has no one than this, that He lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant
does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learnt from My Father I have made known to you.

Malaysians are familiar with the concept of motifs as repeated patterns for a particular work of art. We are proud of our batik heritage. I vividly recall designing a motif on a block and then printing it on a piece of white teteron cotton in our school art class back in the 60's. A motif takes time  to design and it takes time to put into good use. Similarly, in pastoral counselling, in the hope of discovering a root cause for a specific problem, we pray and take time to look for motifs or repeated patterns in the counsellees relationships, attitudes and life generally. We want to see whether there is any habit that is consciously or subconsciously expressed so that we may pray for these undesirable habits to be reduced and, in God's mercy, be eventually removed through the renewal of the mind and the Holy Spirit's transformation
process.
