2 Peter 1:5-8
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are to cultivate all that is necessary to produce a godly life. To be able to do so, there must be desire, determine, and discipline on our part. Peter listed the eight qualities that are needed to live a life that will be pleasing to God.
