1 Peter 2:11-12
Beloved, I urge you h as sojourners and exiles i to abstain from the passions of the flesh, j which wage war against your soul.
k Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, l they may see your good deeds and glorify God on m the day of visitation.

The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine. For you are strangers and sojourners with me.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you?
1 Peter 3:16
Having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.
2 Corinthians 8:21
For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man.
That you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.
And sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
2 Corinthians 9:13
By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission flowing from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others.
And they glorified God because of me.
What will you do on the day of punishment, in the ruin that will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help, and where will you leave your wealth?
And tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.
