"Don't pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults - unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It's easy to see a smudge on your neighbor's face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, 'Let me wash your face for you,' when your own face is distorted by contempt? It's this whole traveling road-show mentality all over again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face, and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor." Matthew 7:1-5 (The Message)
 
"Everyone therefore who acknowledges Me before others, I also will acknowledge before My Father in Heaven; but whoever denies Me before others, I also will deny before My Father in Heaven…

     "It is like a man, traveling to another country, having left his house, and given authority to his servants, and to each one his work, and also commanded the doorkeeper to keep watch.

Mark 13:31-37 (WEB)
 
And His compassion is, generation after generation, upon those who fear Him. He has manifested His supreme strength. He has scattered those who were haughty in the thoughts of their hearts.

"One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much." Luke 16:10 (ESV)

He was full of grace and truth… For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:1, 14, 17 (WNT)
 
"He who trusts in Him does not come up for judgment. He who does not trust has already received sentence, because he has not his trust resting on the name of God's only Son. And this is the test by which men are judged--the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness more than they loved the Light, because their deeds were wicked. For every wrongdoer hates the light, and does not come to the light, for fear his actions should be exposed and condemned. But he who does what is honest and right comes to the light, in order that his actions may be plainly shown to have been done in God." John 3:18-21 (WNT)

It is because your ears are shut to My teaching. You are the children of your father the Evil One and it is your pleasure to do his desires. From the first he was a taker of life; and he did not go in the true way because there is no true thing in him. When he says what is false, it is natural to him, for he is false and the father of what is false. But because I say what is true, you have no belief in Me.
     "Which of you is able truly to say that I am a sinner? If I say what is true, why have you no belief in Me? He who is a child of God gives ear to the words of God: your ears are not open to them because you are not from God."
John 8:42-47 (BBE)
 
"Yet a little while," He replied, "the light is among you. Be faithful to the light that you have, for fear darkness should overtake you; for a man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going.

If they're not backed by a godly life, they accumulate as poison in the soul. 2 Timothy 2:15-17 (The Message)
 
Keep a strong curb, however, on your youthful cravings; and strive for integrity, good faith, love, peace, in company with all who pray to the Lord with pure hearts. 2 Timothy 2:22 (WNT)
 
In the same way exhort the younger men to be discreet, and above all make your own life a pattern of right conduct, having in your teaching no taint of insincerity, but a serious tone, and healthy language which no one can censure, so that our opponents may feel ashamed at having nothing evil to say against us. Titus 2:6-8 (WNT)
 
Pink California Ice PlantPeople always use the name of someone greater than themselves when they swear. The oath proves that what they say is true, and this ends all arguing. God wanted to prove that His promise was true to those who would get what He promised. And He wanted them to understand clearly that His purposes never change, so He made an oath. These two things cannot change: God cannot lie when He makes a promise, and He cannot lie when He makes an oath. These things encourage us who came to God for safety. They give us strength to hold on to the hope we have been given. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and strong. It enters behind the curtain in the Most Holy Place in Heaven, where Jesus has gone ahead of us and for us. He has become the High Priest forever, a priest like Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:16-20 (NCV™)  [I don't know if anyone really knows for sure the identity of Melchizedek. Some say he was actually Shem, one of Noah's sons. Others say he had no father nor mother, there was no record of any of his ancestors, he had neither any end of days nor beginning of life, in other words he was immortal, and that his life was like the Son of God. The name Melchizedek means King of Righteousness, and the only One who can be legitimately called that is Jesus. Perhaps Melchizedek was Jesus making an earthly appearance before His incarnation.] 
 
For judgment will be without mercy to anyone who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment. James 2:13 (NRSV)
 
The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:18 (NKJV)
 
Since you know that He cares, let your language show it. Don't add words like "I swear to God" to your own words. Don't show your impatience by concocting oaths to hurry up God. Just say yes or no. Just say what is true. That way, your language can't be used against you. James 5:12 (The Message)
 
He who wishes to be well-satisfied with life and see happy days--let him restrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from deceitful words. 1 Peter 3:10 (WNT)
 
Even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. 1 Peter 3:14 (WEB)
 
If we claim to be already free from sin, we lead ourselves astray and the truth has no place in our hearts. If we confess our sins, He is so faithful and just that He forgives us our sins and cleanses us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9 (WNT)
 
Since you know that He is righteous, be assured also that the man who habitually acts righteously is a child of His. 1 John 2:29 (WNT)
 
Dear children, let no one lead you astray. The man who acts righteously is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who is habitually guilty of sin is a child of the Devil, because the Devil has been a sinner from the very beginning. The Son of God appeared for the purpose of undoing the work of the Devil. 1 John 3:7-8 (WNT)
 
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. 3 John 4 (KJV)
