There­fore I, a pris­on­er for serv­ing the Lord, beg you to lead a life wor­thy of your call­ing, for you have been called by God. Al­ways be hum­ble and gen­tle. Be pa­tient with each oth­er, mak­ing al­lowance for each oth­er’s faults be­cause of your love. Make every ef­fort to keep your­selves unit­ed in the Spir­it, bind­ing your­selves to­geth­er with peace.

Eph­esians 4:1–3
