Fr. Gabriel sums up the content of the Epistle to date and moves into chapter 5, which begins with the call to be "imitators of God"—a tall order, indeed, but one followed up with practical advice on behavior. Paul tackles three movements in the Christian life: from lust to love, from darkness to light, and from folly to wisdom. The last movement hearkens back to the Old Testament's wisdom tradition, in which wisdom is an attitude rather than an attainment, a behavior rather than an intellectual task.
