ANGER MANAGEMENT, GREED BANISHMENT, CLEANING UP OUR ACT

25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

We are about to wrap up our look at Ephesians 4.  Paul tackles several very practical issues in these closing verses. Telling the truth … managing our anger … banishing our greed … watching our speech … cleaning the garbage relational behaviors out of our lives.

1. Why does Paul say truthfulness is essential to the Body?


2. Why is anger so destructive to the Body?

3. Why does our greed (stealing) harm the Body?

4.  What is unwholesome talk? How does this damage the Body?

5. What is our standard for the things we speak about?

6.  How does brawling, rage, etc. affect the Body?

7. What is the measure of our conduct within the Body?

8. How have you experienced the importance of these instructions?

FROM STEVE: HAVE A GREAT EASTER! SEE YOU IN CHURCH SUNDAY!
