Ephesians 4:31-32 (The Message)
31-32 Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane
talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another
as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 5:1-2 (The Message)
1-2 Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children
who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does
is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. 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.
