Jesus said to him, »You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good life let him show his deeds in the humility of wisdom.
Set your minds on the things above, not on things that are on earth.
Be careful, then, how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise,
making the most of your time, because the days are evil.
For I resolved to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
For by the grace given to me I say to every one among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith which God has assigned him.
For since the creation of the world his invisible nature, even his eternal power and deity, has been clearly seen, being understood by the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;
»Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
