I Thessalonians 5: 14-22

14And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the faint-hearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them.

15See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all.

16Rejoice always,

17pray without ceasing,

18give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

19Do not quench the Spirit.

20Do not despise the words of prophets,

21but test everything; hold fast to what is good;

22abstain from every form of evil.

Philippians 4: 4-8

4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

5Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.

6Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
