    Hi,

    One fragment that helps me is from 1 Thessalonians, chapter 4 (ESV)

    3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, 5 not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one transgress and wrong his brother in this matter, because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you beforehand and solemnly warned you. 7 For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.

    Anyone would like to add more from the Bible?

    Wisdom Bestows Well-Being

    1My son, do not forget my teaching,

    but keep my commands in your heart,

    2for they will prolong your life many years

    and bring you peace and prosperity.

    3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;

    bind them around your neck,

    write them on the tablet of your heart.

    4Then you will win favor and a good name

    in the sight of God and man.

    5Trust in the Lord with all your heart

    and lean not on your own understanding;

    6in all your ways submit to him,

    and he will make your paths straight. a

    7Do not be wise in your own eyes;

    fear the Lord and shun evil.

    8This will bring health to your body

    and nourishment to your bones.

    9Honor the Lord with your wealth,

    with the firstfruits of all your crops;

    10then your barns will be filled to overflowing,

    and your vats will brim over with new wine.

    11My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,

    and do not resent his rebuke,

    12because the Lord disciplines those he loves,

    as a father the son he delights in. b

    13Blessed are those who find wisdom,

    those who gain understanding,

    14for she is more profitable than silver

    and yields better returns than gold.

    15She is more precious than rubies;

    nothing you desire can compare with her.

    16Long life is in her right hand;

    in her left hand are riches and honor.

    17Her ways are pleasant ways,

    and all her paths are peace.

    18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;

    those who hold her fast will be blessed.

    19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,

    by understanding he set the heavens in place;

    20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,

    and the clouds let drop the dew.

    21My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,

    preserve sound judgment and discretion;

    22they will be life for you,

    an ornament to grace your neck.

    23Then you will go on your way in safety,

    and your foot will not stumble.

    24When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

    when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

    25Have no fear of sudden disaster

    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

    26for the Lord will be at your side

    and will keep your foot from being snared.

    27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,

    when it is in your power to act.

    28Do not say to your neighbor,

    “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—

    when you already have it with you.

    29Do not plot harm against your neighbor,

    who lives trustfully near you.

    30Do not accuse anyone for no reason—

    when they have done you no harm.

    31Do not envy the violent

    or choose any of their ways.

    32For the Lord detests the perverse

    but takes the upright into his confidence.

    33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,

    but he blesses the home of the righteous.

    34He mocks proud mockers

    but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.

    35The wise inherit honor,

    but fools get only shame.

    Psalm 51

    The whole Psalm is brilliant, but what initially stuck out to me was verse 3

    "For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me."

    This was written by David after he was confronted about his adultery and murder. He asks for mercy, forgiveness, and that he may be used as a device of the Lord, to declare His ways and praise. David brings his broken spirit and guilt before God.

    It is all too easy for me to embrace shame, and to run from God and hide my guilt from Him. I think I cannot approach God with my sin, and try to rid myself of it before I can turn to him. This is completely backwards. Only with God may my sin be conquered and I may fully dwell in him. Without God, I can do nothing.

    "my sin is always before me," but I should not despair, but turn to God who has conquered sin and death. Shame crushes me, but the freedom of Christ has already set me free.

    3 powerful verses from the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:

    8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

    27 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’
    28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

    1 John 1:10 , if we claim not to have sinned we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

    The desire for God must be with us at all times. I say this to young Christians, both in body and spirit. Do not attempt these things through your own discipline, but from an abiding presence of the holy spirit. If the spirit is not with you, pray for God to draw you to him, pray for that change in spirit. If you feel you are not truly repentant, pray for that. If you feel dishonest or disheartened, pray for that.
    Pray also that you not view the world from a worldly perspective, being seduced by the ideologies of television or webpages, but as God intended you to see everything. Try not to look at marriage and love and romance as tv tropes but as the truth they were intended to be. And not just marriage but everything, for Satan ALWAYS worms his way back in if we're not pure in all things.

    17 Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. 18 They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. 19 They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity.

    20 But that is not the way you learned Christ!— 21 assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus,

    22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

    25 Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. 26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and give no opportunity to the devil. (Ephessians 4:17-27 ESV).

    1 Corinthians 10:13

    No temptation has overtaken you except that which is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

    Etch this on your hearts, my brothers.

  13. Parable of the Ten Virgins
    Book
    The Parable of the Ten Virgins, also known as the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins or the Parable of the ten bridesmaids, is one of the well known parables of Jesus. According to the Gospel of Matthew 25:1-13, the five virgins who are prepared for the bridegroom's arrival are rewarded, while the five who are not prepared are disowned. The parable has a clear eschatological theme: be prepared for the Day of Judgment. It was one of the most popular parables in the Middle Ages, with enormous influence on Gothic art, sculpture and the architecture of German and French cathedrals.
