5 OUT OF 7

Ephesians 4:22-30
“You were taught to change the way you were living. The person you used to be will ruin you through desires that deceive you. However, you were taught to have a new attitude. You were also taught to become a new person created to be like God, truly righteous and holy. So then, get rid of lies. Speak the truth to each other, because we are all members of the same body. Be angry without sinning. Don’t go to bed angry. Don’t give the devil any opportunity to work. Thieves must quit stealing and, instead, they must work hard. They should do something good with their hands so that they’ll have something to share with those in need. Don’t say anything that would hurt another person. Instead, speak only what is good so that you can give help wherever it is needed. That way, what you say will help those who hear you. Don’t give God’s Holy Spirit any reason to be upset with you. He has put his seal on you for the day you will be set free from the world of sin.”

5 out of 7 isn’t bad is it?

Yes, I’m afraid so!

Unfortunately, I have a sharp wit and a sharp tongue. I’m only teasing – most of the time. I don’t intend to hurt anyone. But sometimes I do.

My verse for today: Proverbs 15:4 A soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue breaks the spirit.

John 16:16-18
“In a little while you won’t see me anymore. Then in a little while you will see me again.” Some of his disciples said to each other, “What does he mean? He tells us that in a little while we won’t see him. Then he tells us that in a little while we will see him again and that he’s going to the Father.” So they were asking each other, “What does he mean when he says, ‘In a little while’? We don’t understand what he’s talking about.”
