20 We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
9 Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

12 Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?' or ‘What shall we drink?' or ‘What shall we wear?'

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

2 Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits-
3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

20 and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."
4 The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.
