1 Thessalonians 5:11-24
So strengthen one another, and build each other up, just as you are doing.
This, my dear family, is the request we make of you. Take note of those who work among you and exercise leadership over you in the Lord, those who give you instruction. Give them the highest possible rank of love because of their work. Live at peace among yourselves.
And, my dear family, we beg you to warn those who step out of line. Console the downcast; help the weak; be warmhearted and patient toward everybody. Make sure nobody pays anyone back evil for evil. Instead, always find the way to do good to one another, and to everybody.
Never stop praying;
In everything be thankful (This is God’s will for you in the Messiah Jesus);
Don’t quench the spirit,
Don’t look down on prophecies,
If something is good, hold it fast;
If something looks evil, keep well away.
Now may the God of peace himself make you completely holy. May your complete spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus the Messiah. The one who calls you is faithful; he will do it.
At “Back to School” nite last nite, we found out that our fourth grade daughter, Gabriela, is memorizing this perciope this semester.
How good is that?
I’m gonna post this on the wall of our dining room for all of us to see all of the time.
I think I will memorize it with her.
I mean, if a fourth grader can do it…..
This is the Kingdom New Testament version here FYI.
