    4      Teachable without being gullible.

    5      Friendly without being naive.

    6      A servant without being an enabler.

    7      Merciful without being undiscerning.

    8      Discerning without being a critic.

    9      Capable without being overly self-reliant.

    10    Godly without being Pharisaic.
