Happy is the generous man, the one who feeds the poor.
The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
But, my child, let me give you some further advice: Be careful, for writing books is endless, and much study wears you out.
They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share.
Not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.
