All of the above

Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. 2 Pet. 2:6-7

God created human beings in His own nature but that nature has been corrupted. We sometimes do a decent job of acting out these traits, and most of us really do want to be this way, but maintaining any one of them for very long, much less keeping all of these balls in the air at once, is not in our corrupted natures. Only continually clinging to God’s promise of restoration and reconciliation make these beautiful manifestations of His nature part of our own.

Lord, supplement my faith…with all of the above.
