Do all things without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright stars in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will recieve mercy.
Remember it is a sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
Dear friend, don't let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do good prove that they are God's children, and those who do evil prove that they do not know God.
Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.
Do all that you can to live at peace with everyone.
Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
