For we are members of one another

We find in the Bible what we look for, I believe.  This week, because it was second lesson and because it's what I look for, I found this:  

25So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbors, for we are members of one another. 26Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27and do not make room for the devil. 28Thieves must give up stealing; rather let them labor and work honestly with their own hands, so as to have something to share with the needy. 29Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with which you were marked with a seal for the day of redemption.31Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice, 32and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.

(The Epistle to the Ephesians 4:25 - 32)

In Paul's text to the Ephesians, he shortened it to "try 2 get along, k?  Love and hugs!"

Although St. Paul always annoyed me mightily (that conversion zeal usually gets right up my nose), he does have some of the better bits of the New Testament. Love to you, and Pekoe too. Gwyn
