Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.” Psalms 64:10 “The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.”

11 Live Righteously “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;”

15 Learn Contentment “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Discontented people murmur - 1 Cor. 10:10 Covetousness is opposite - Col. 3:5 1 Tim.6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”

16 13. And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. 14. I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.” Stay Busy Doing Good
