Bible: 2 Peter 1:5-8

1:5 For this very reason, 1  make every effort 2  to add to your faith excellence, 3  to excellence, knowledge; 1:6 to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; 4  to perseverance, godliness; 1:7 to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish 5  love. 6  1:8 For if 7  these things are really yours 8  and are continually increasing, 9  they will keep you from becoming 10  ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of 11  knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately. 12
