1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.
1 John 3:18
18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1 Corinthians 4:2
2 Now in this way those who are trusted with something valuable must show they are worthy of that trust.
James 1: 19-20
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
