"Never let the fire in your heart go out.

Keep it alive.

Serve the Lord.

When you hope, be joyful.

When you suffer, be patient.

When you pray, be faithful.

Share with God's people who are in need.

Welcome others into your homes.

Bless those who hurt you.

Bless them,
and do not call down curses on them.

Be joyful with those who are joyful.

Be sad with those who are sad.

Agree with each other.

Don't be proud.

Be willing to be a friend of people

who aren't considered important.

Don't think that you are better than others.

Don't pay back evil with evil.

Be careful to do what everyone thinks is right.

If possible, live in peace with everyone.

Do that as much as you can."
