Marsha's Musings: Christian Virtues. (2 Peter 1:4-9 KJV)


Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. (2 Peter 1:4-9 KJV)

It says "giving all diligence"....   This means W-O-R-K!  I dare say most Christians are so busy being entertained and amused by electronic gadgets and computers that they find it too hard to give diligence to cultivating these virtues in their lives.  I have four fingers pointing right back at me!

Some time ag I did a study on these virtues.  I'm going to post a photo of what I came up with.
