This is what I strive to do. If you are my friend, if you love me, if you love Christ, you will tell me when I’m falling short of this. Peace be with you.
Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.
