Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them.

Ephesians 5:10-13 NLT
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9 NIV

Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts.
