Bible verses about "shyness" | Worrell

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 If I speak with tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 2 And, if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all the mysteries and all knowledge; and, if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing, 3 And, if I bestow in morsels all my goods; and, if I give my body to he burned, but have not love, I am profited nothing. 4 Love suffers long, is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not herself, is not puffed up, 5 behaves not unseemly, seeks not her own, is not provoked, takes no account of evil, 6 rejoices not at unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but whether there be prophecies, they will be done away; whether there be tongues, they will cease; whether there be knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; 10 but, when the complete comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I was wont to talk as a child, to think as a child, to reason as a child; since I have become a man, I have done away with the things of the child; 12 for now we see through a mirror, obscurely; but then, face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall fully know, even as I also was fully known. 13 But now abides faith, hope, love; these three; and the greatest of these is love.

1 Peter 3:15

15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts; ready always for an answer to every one who asks of you an account concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear;

Galatians 5:22-25

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, continence; against such there is no law. 24 And those who are of Christ Jesus crucified the flesh with the passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk.

Hebrews 13:2

2 Do not forget to show love for strangers; for thereby some entertained angels unawares.

James 1:22

22 And become doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding yourselves.

Philippians 4:6-9

6 Be anxious for nothing; but, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are righteous, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 The things also, which ye learned, and received, and heard, and saw in me, these practice; and the God of peace will be with you.

2 Timothy 1:7
