Galatians 5: 18- 25

5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest; they are: fornication, lust, homosexuality, self-indulgence,
5:20 the serving of idols, drug use, hostility, contentiousness, jealousy, wrath, quarrels, dissensions, divisions,
5:21 envy, murder, inebriation, carousing, and similar things. About these things, I continue to preach to you, as I have preached to you: that those who act in this way shall not obtain the kingdom of God.
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, forbearance,
5:23 meekness, faith, modesty, abstinence, chastity. There is no law against such things.
5:24 For those who are Christ’s have crucified their flesh, along with its vices and desires.
5:25 If we live by the Spirit, we should also walk by the Spirit.

Luke 11: 42- 46

11:42 But woe to you, Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, but you ignore judgment and the charity of God. But these things you ought to have done, without omitting the others.
11:43 Woe to you, Pharisees! For you love the first seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the marketplace.
11:44 Woe to you! For you are like graves that are not noticeable, so that men walk over them without realizing it.”
11:45 Then one of the experts in the law, in response, said to him, “Teacher, in saying these things, you bring an insult against us as well.”
11:46 So he said: “And woe to you experts in the law! For you weigh men down with burdens which they are not able to bear, but you yourselves do not touch the weight with even one of your fingers.
