Ephesians 5:15-17
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

Luke 10:17
He answered: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

Proverbs 31:10-31
10    A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11    Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12    She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13    She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14    She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15    She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.
16    She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17    She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18    She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19    In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20    She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21    When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22    She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23    Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24    She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25    She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26    She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27    She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28    Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29    “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31    Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

1 Peter 4:7-11
            The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Hebrews 13:20,21
            May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20; 21
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Acts 2:42-47
            They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Romans 12:1
Therefore I urge you, in view of God’s mercy, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice…

Romans 15:5-8; 13
            May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God…  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 12:9
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

Romans 13:8,9
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.

Romans 12:1-8
            Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

Daniel 3:28
Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.  

John  3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

1 John 4:10
This is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Luke 9:23–26
Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?”

Jeremiah 26:14
As for me, I am in your hands; do with me whatever you think is good and right.
