“We appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, to instruct those who are not in their place of battle. Be skilled at gently encouraging those who feel themselves inadequate.
Be faithful to stand your ground.
Help the weak to stand again.
Be quick to demonstrate patience with everyone.
Resist revenge, and make sure that no one pays back evil in place of evil but always pursue doing what is beautiful to one another and to all the unbelievers.
Let joy be your continual feast.
And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s
perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:14-16, 18 TPT
