For the wages of sin is death, but the gracious gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Do not participate in the useless deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them
When there are many words, wrongdoing is unavoidable,
But one who restrains his lips is wise.
One who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor one who loves abundance with its income. This too is futility.
If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.
And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
Blessed is the person who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the Law of the Lord,
And on His Law he meditates day and night.
But now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin that dwells in me.
So if you, despite being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
