Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
