09 May Ephesians 4:28

28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need.

Here, Paul is expressing in different ways what it means to live new life in the context of others. He addresses the importance of work; especially with one’s hands. Work keeps us from being idle, tempted, and focused on doing work for God’s glory. How do you value work? Can you see how God can be lifted and glorified through your work? Paul called for those to work so they could be a benefit and blessing to others.
