2 Timothy 3:10-15

10

But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,

11

persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra-what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12

Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

13

But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

14

But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,

15

and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Luke 18:10-14

10

Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

11

The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men-extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.

12

‘I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’

13

And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’

14

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
