Read Ephesians 4:29 (https://bit.ly/31odT2l)
It’s a loud, loud world! Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with the noise of social media, newscasts, podcasts, advertisements, TV, movies, radio, politics, etc. This relentless racket takes our mind off of Christ. Instead we spend our days filling the silence with useless and sometimes sinful distractions. We often speak empty words, just so someone will hear us. Even in the quiet times, our private thoughts saturate the peacefulness with the sound of our own insecurities. Our heads continue the clamor even as we lay down to sleep at night. Jesus calls us to a very different standard. In this passage, Paul writes to the believers saying the life of a Christian should be lived with diligence, showing love to one another, and earning respect through quiet actions and service. Our goal is to build up and benefit others, and our actions need to speak louder than our words. Our goal should be compassion rather than conflict.
