Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will;
Through insolence comes nothing but strife,
But wisdom is with those who receive counsel.
Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy.
1 Corinthians 3:3
for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?
2 Corinthians 12:20
For I am afraid that perhaps when I come I may find you to be not what I wish and may be found by you to be not what you wish; that perhaps there will be strife, jealousy, angry tempers, disputes, slanders, gossip, arrogance, disturbances;
But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.
But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.
1 Timothy 6:4
he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions,
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth.
Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”?
1 Peter 2:1
Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
And He began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honor at the table, saying to them,
I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;
1 Corinthians 15:9
For I am the least of the apostles, and not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love,
1 Peter 5:5
You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
