Ephesians 4:25-28 (JDV)
Ephesians 4:25 For this reason, putting away lying, speak the truth, each one to his neighbor, because we are members of one another.
Ephesians 4:26 Be angry and do not sin. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger,
Ephesians 4:27 and don’t give the devil an opportunity.
Ephesians 4:28 Let the thief no longer steal. Instead, he is to do honest work with his own hands, so that he has something to share with anyone in need.
guidelines for growing together
If you want to know how to show love to your neighbor or fellow believer, here are three suggestions.
honest words: don’t lie to him.
honest forgiveness: don’t stay angry at him.
honest work: don’t miss an opportunity to give to him.
If we are diligent with following these guidelines, we will eventually find ourselves growing towards each other, instead of away from each other.
