Kolo (showing humility)

Kolo means to creep, crawl, or move along as a gentle breeze or shower. The act of kolo, or crawling slightly bent over, was a sign of deference showing of humility towards honored guests. Like many words in the Hawaiian vernacular, kolo, is a verb that directly describes an action found in nature, like the way in which mist hugs the ground as it crawls over a mountain.

Finally, all of you should be of one mind.

Sympathize with each other.

Love each other as brothers and sisters.

Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. (1 Peter 3:8)
