Titus 2: 1- 8, 11- 14

2:1But you are to speak the things that befit sound doctrine.
2:2Old men should be sober, chaste, prudent, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
2:3Old women, similarly, should be in holy attire, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teaching well,
2:4so that they may teach prudence to the young women, so that they may love their husbands, love their children,
2:5be sensible, chaste, restrained, have concern for the household, be kind, be subordinate to their husbands: so that the Word of God may be not blasphemed.
2:6Exhort young men similarly, so that they may show self-restraint.
2:7In all things, present yourself as an example of good works: in doctrine, with integrity, with seriousness,
2:8with sound words, irreproachably, so that he who is an opponent may dread that he has nothing evil to say about us.
2:11For the grace of God our Savior has appeared to all men,
2:12instructing us to reject impiety and worldly desires, so that we may live soberly and justly and piously in this age,
2:13looking forward to the blessed hope and the advent of the glory of the great God and of our Savior Jesus Christ.
2:14He gave himself for our sake, so that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse for himself an acceptable people, pursuers of good works.

Luke 17: 7- 10

17:7But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, would say to him, as he was returning from the field, ‘Come in immediately; sit down to eat,’
17:8and would not say to him: ‘Prepare my dinner; gird yourself and minister to me, while I eat and drink; and after these things, you shall eat and drink?’
17:9Would he be grateful to that servant, for doing what he commanded him to do?
17:10I think not. So too, when you have done all these things that have been taught to you, you should say: ‘We are useless servants. We have done what we should have done.’ ”
