1 Corinthians 10:23

"Everything is permissible"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"—but not everything is constructive.

My "poor man's version" of this passage is "Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD do it." I know there is a lot more to this passage and that I am pulling it out all by itself, but I think it's a good "life saying". Basically, use your common sense and THINK before you act. That's a tough one for me.

"...Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:7-18
