These days of 30 ... purposed, driven, holy, living.
Here are the next verses ... and I will play gradually catch up with blog posts on them ...
Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you!
Tie them around your neck as a reminder.
Write them deep within your heart.
You are a chosen people. You are royal priests,
a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show
others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into
his wonderful light.
1 Peter 2:9
Do you see any truly competent workers?
They will serve kings
rather than working for ordinary people.
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.
1 Corinthians 2: 12
