"Work, Share, Speak"
“Work, Share, Speak”
When one is truly saved…not just a conversion to religious activity…then, there will be an accompanying change in behavior.
The thief will not longer steal.
He will work.
He will work for a couple of purposes…note them…
Corrupting talk will no longer come from our mouths.
Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
and give no opportunity to the devil.
Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
We will labor.
We will do honest work, not only to provide, but to be able to share with anyone in need.
That is the the reason the Lord provides abundance.
Not to hide away.
To meet the needs of others.
We should have no corrupting talk.
Rather, we should speak only that which builds up, which edifies, which encourages.
Speech which fits the occasion…correction, truth, etc.
Our speech should impart God’s grace to all who hear.
Speak the grace of God
