3:1 So then, if you were raised with the Anointed, seek what is above where the Anointed is seated at the right hand of God.

3:5 So put your association with the earth to death: promiscuity, impurity, evil emotions and passions, and greed, which is idolatry.

3:12 So then, as God’s chosen holy ones that are dearly loved, put these on: compassion, kindness, humility, even-temperedness, and patience,
