Passage: Ephesians 4:25-32
1. What are the things that Paul commands believers to avoid? What are the things to do?
2. Notice that in the examples that Paul provided in this passage, the avoidance of sin is for the benefit of the community: work so to have something to share with those in need (verse 28), speak to build others up (verse 29), and be kind and compassionate to others (verse 32), etc. How does this view differ from the “self help” philosophy?
