Bible: 2 Corinthians 6:4-10

6:4 But as God’s servants, 1  we have commended ourselves in every way, 2  with great endurance, in persecutions, 3  in difficulties, in distresses, 6:5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, 4  in troubles, 5  in sleepless nights, in hunger, 6:6 by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by benevolence, by the Holy Spirit, 6  by genuine 7  love, 6:7 by truthful 8  teaching, 9  by the power of God, with weapons of righteousness both for the right hand and for the left, 10  6:8 through glory and dishonor, through slander and praise; regarded as impostors, 11  and yet true; 6:9 as unknown, and yet well-known; as dying and yet – see! – we continue to live; as those who are scourged 12  and yet not executed; 6:10 as sorrowful, but always rejoicing, as poor, but making many rich, as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
