In the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
But it’s different when Jesus has taken hold of you. Live in Christ. Care for the concerns of others first. Share generously. Boast in the Lord work. Be humble always. Be gentle, obedient, and grateful. Be holy, for the Lord is holy. Pour out your heart in genuine care or others. Don’t take offense easily. If you don’t have something nice to say, avoid saying anything. Control yourself. BE KIND. Love what is good. Be up front with people. Be careful in your words. Do not think more highly of yourself than you ought. Love God. Be godly.
Jesus, take away all sin from my life. Amen.
