Matthew 7:1-29

1 Do not judge, or you will be judged. 2 For with the same judgment you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 And why do you look for the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye but ignore the board in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. 6 Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. 7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 9 Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish will give him a snake? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! 12 In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets. 13 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it. 15 Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, by their fruit you will recognize them. 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you evildoers!'" 24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain fell, the torrents raged, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because its foundation was on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the floods rose, the winds blew and beat upon that house, and down it fell — with a mighty crash." 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at His teaching, 29 because He taught as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then some Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, 2 “Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They do not wash their hands when they eat.” 3 Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God said: ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ 5 But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, 'Whatever help you might have received from me is a gift to God' 6 he need not honor his father or mother with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you: 8 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 9 They worship Me in vain; they teach as doctrine the precepts of men.’” 10 Jesus called the crowd to Him and said, “Listen and understand. 11 not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man." 12 Then the disciples came to him and said, Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this speech? 13 He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father did not plant will be pulled up by the roots. 14 Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” 15 Peter said to Him, “Explain this parable to us.” 16 “Do you still not understand?” Jesus asked. 17 Do you not yet see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? 18 But the things which come out of the mouth come from the heart; and they make a man unclean. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, and slander. 20 "These things make a man unclean. Eating food with unwashed hands does not make a man unclean." 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And a Canaanite woman from that region came to Him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is miserably possessed by a demon.” 23 But Jesus did not answer a word. So His disciples came and urged Him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.” 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said. 26 He replied, "It is not fair to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." 28 then Jesus answered her, O woman, great is thy faith: as you desire, be it done. and her daughter was healed from that very hour. 29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a hillside and sat down. 30 Large crowds came to Him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and laid them at His feet, and He healed them. 31 The crowd was amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus called His disciples to Him and said, “I have compassion for this crowd, because they have already been with Me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may faint along the way.” 33 The disciples said to him, "Where can we get enough bread in this uninhabited place to feed such a crowd?" 34 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied, “and a few small fish.” 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. 36 He took the seven loaves and the fish and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples to the crowds. 37 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 38 The number who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 After he sent the crowds away, he got into a boat and went to the region of Magadan.

1 Corinthians 10:23

23 “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is edifying.

Luke 6:37

37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

John 4:23-24

23 But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such as these to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”

Romans 14:16

16 Do not allow what you consider good, then, to be spoken of as evil.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I urge therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all men; 2 for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and acceptable before God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for allthe testimony given at the proper time. 7 To this I was appointed a herald and an apostle — I am telling the truth, I am not lying — a teacher of Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 Therefore, I want men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or dissension. 9 and I would have the women dress becomingly, with modesty and self-control, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly clothes, 10 but with good deeds, as is proper for women who profess to worship God. 11 A woman must learn in quietness and full submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And it was not Adam who was deceived. It was the woman who was deceived and became a lawbreaker. 15 But she will be saved through childbearing, if they continue in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.

Proverbs 1:1-33

1 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:" 2 These proverbs are for gaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; 3 To receive the discipline of wisdom, justice, and right, and equity; 4 for giving prudence to the naïve, knowledge and discretion to the young. 5 Let the wise listen and increase their learning; let the person of understanding receive guidance 6 to understand a proverb, and parables, the words and riddles of the wise. 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. 8 My son, listen to your father's instruction, and do not forsake your mother's teaching: 9 for they will be a garland to grace your head, and chains around your neck. 10 My son, if sinners entice you, do not comply with them;" 11 If they say: 'Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood, let us lurk for the innocent without cause; 12 Let's swallow them alive like Sheol, and whole like those who go down into the pit. 13 We'll find all valuable wealth. We'll fill our houses with plunder. 14 Throw in your lot with us. We'll all have one purse." 15 My son, do not go along with them, and keep your feet away from their paths! 16 for their feet run to evil. They hurry to shed blood. 17 Look, it is useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds, 18 but these people lie in wait for their own blood. They ambush only themselves. 19 Such is the way of all those who seek illicit gain it takes away the lives of those who possess it. 20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street. She utters her voice in the public squares. 21 At the corner of noisy streets she calleth, at the entrances of gates; in the city she sayeth her speeches: 22 "How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? How long will mockers delight themselves in mockery, and fools hate knowledge? 23 May you turn to my argument! Behold, I shall pour out my spirit upon you; I will make my words known to you. 24 Because your ears were shut to my voice; no one gave attention to my out-stretched hand; 25 because you neglected all my advice and did not want my correction, 26 I also will laugh at your disaster. I will mock when calamity overtakes you, 27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when your disaster comes on like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come on you. 28 Then they will call on me, but I will not answer. They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me; 29 Since they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD, 30 Consented not to my counsel, disdained all my rebuke, 31 Therefore they will eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with the fruit of their own schemes. 32 for the waywardness of the simple ones will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them. 33 But whoever listens to me will dwell securely, and will be at ease, without fear of harm."

Leviticus 19:32

32 You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD.

Colossians 3:12

12 Therefore, as God's chosen ones, holy and loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.

Philippians 4:5

5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is near.

1 Corinthians 14:40

40 But everything must be done in a proper and orderly way.

Colossians 4:5-6

5 Behave wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
