Since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
By the grace given me I say to everyone of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
