Let your good deeds shine out for all to see,
so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,
but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Then you will know what God wants you to do,
and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right.
Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable.
Thank about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and heard
from me and saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you.
Know that God causes everything to work together for the good
of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them
The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
