Three Baskets of Sevens

If you do these things, you will never fall.
                                 —2 Peter 1:10

Here are two baskets of sevens that you should keep well-stocked in your spiritual pantry.

  1. Pure
  2. Peace-loving
  3. Considerate
  4. Submissive
  5. Full of mercy and good fruit
  6. Impartial
  7. Sincere

Characteristics built on the foundation of faith that will keep you from falling (2 Peter 1:5–7):

  1. Goodness

And here is one basket of seven that you should take to the dumpster.
