A Little Sunday Scripture

1 Thessalonians 5:12-18
But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work.  Live in peace with one another.
We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.
Rejoice always;
pray without ceasing;
in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

Pin It!

My husband is one of those who "diligently labors..has a charge...and gives instruction." For some reason, the first verse was reassuring to me. (I think it's hard for pastors to preach on this verse because it looks like you're asking for something. But we really DO need to take it to heart!)

The following verses are so instructive and practical, too. (Wow! I'm all emotional this morning. Good thing we're going on vacation after church today.)
