Joshua 24:15 (ESV)
15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Ephesians 4:31-32 (ERV)
31 Never be bitter, angry, or mad. Never shout angrily or say things to hurt others. Never do anything evil. 32 Be kind and loving to each other. Forgive each other the same as God forgave you through Christ.
Luke 12:34 (ESV)
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established;
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
Do all things without grumbling or disputing,
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
1 Peter 5:5
Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
43 But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant. 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave[b] of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[a] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant[a] is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),3 “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,[a] for those who are called according to his purpose.
And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.”
1 Thessalonians 3:12
and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you,
However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
1 John 3:18
Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
1 John 2:15-17
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life[a]—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and forsake not your mother’s teaching,
Whoever troubles his own household will inherit the wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.
The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous will stand.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
