Increase in the virtues of godliness, and do not reject the things your parents taught you of God.
Exercise kindness and thoughtfulness toward others, instead of playing pranks on friends and brothers.
Talk seriously of things of value, instead of joking senselessly of things that amount to nothing.
Entertain thoughts of purity instead of entertaining sin because of impure thoughts.
Encourage the weaker ones toward a better way, instead of scorning them when they stray.
Never cease to pray that God would keep your soul, and help you press on to that heavenly goal.
