1 Peter 3:8-12 MSG - I think this speaks for itself

8 Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. 9 That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless--that's your job, to bless. You'll be a blessing and also get a blessing.

10 Whoever wants to embrace life
and see the day fill up with good,
Here's what you do:
Say nothing evil or hurtful;
11 Snub evil and cultivate good;
run after peace for all you're worth.
12 God looks on all this with approval,
listening and responding well to what he's asked;
But he turns his back
on those who do evil things.
