On the subject of slipping and sliding…here is some clear advice.
a- Watch what God does,
b- And then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents.
c- Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love.
d- Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in
order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.
e- Don’t allow love to turn into lust, setting off a downhill slide into sexual promiscuity, filthy practices, or bullying greed.
f- Though some tongues just love the taste of gossip, those who follow Jesus have better uses for language than that.
g-Don’t talk dirty or silly. That kind of talk doesn’t fit our style.
h- Thanksgiving is our dialect. (From Ephesians 5:1-4, MSG)
Prayer- Lord we need your help. Don’t let us slide into sin. Amen.
