Rid yourselves, then, of all spite, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and carping criticism.
Like new-born babies all your longing should be for milk -the unadulterated spiritual milk- which will help you to grow up to salvation,
at any rate if you have tasted that the Lord is good.
He is the living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen by God and precious to him; set yourselves close to him
so that you, too, may be living stones making a spiritual house as a holy priesthood to offer the spiritual sacrifices made acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:1-5
