And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
Where, except in the present, can the Eternal be met?
The end of all things is near.
Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,
as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.
If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides,
so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.
I Peter 4:7-11
