Be therefore followers of God, as dear children,
Be therefore perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
But be kind one to another, merciful, giving one to another, as God also in Christ gave to you.
Put on, therefore, as elect and beloved saints of God, hearts of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering,
but as he that called you is holy be you also holy in all [your] conduct,
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become sons of God, to them that believe on his name,
But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be children of the Most High; for he is good to the unthankful and evil.
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God. The world therefore knows us not, because it knew him not.
that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and rains on the just and unjust.
