Therefore, glorify God in
your body.

Let the word of Christ dwell


in you richly, as in all

God.
And whatever you do, in

everything in the name of
the Lord Jesus, giving
thanks to God the Father
through him.
(Col 3:16-17 NAB)

brothers, whatever is true, whatever is


honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if
there is any excellence and if there is
anything worthy of praise, think about these
things. (Phil. 4:8 NAB)
