Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” (http://olivetree.com/b3/Phi.2.3.ESV)
Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
“O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.
