You have been told, O mortal, what is good,
and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do justice and to love goodness,
and to walk humbly with your God.
– Micah 6:8
What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit herself?
Once you were “no people”
but now you are God’s people;
you “had not received mercy”
but now you have received mercy.
-1 Peter 2:10
Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
Merciful and gracious is the LORD, slow to anger, abounding in mercy.
Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.
