Titus 3:1-4 ESV - (1) Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,(2) to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.(3) For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.(4) But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,

James 4:6 But hummingbirds ignore the smelly flesh of dead animals. Instead, they look for the colorful blossoms of desert plants. The vultures live on what was. They live on the past. They fill themselves with what is dead and gone. But hummingbirds live on what is. They seek new life. "Both the hummingbird and the vulture fly over our nation's deserts. All vultures see is rotting meat, because that is what they look for. They thrive on that diet. They fill themselves with freshness and life. Each bird finds what it is looking for. We all do." - Steve Goodier (8) Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones... (10) But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively.(11) Woe to them!
