Simple Rules to Live By.

This is a brief recap of our sermon this am. I felt it was really good advice to pass on.

Rules to Live By

1. Love one another
2. Live a quiet life
3. Mind your own business
4.Work with your own hands
5. Live a good life before outsiders (others)

All of these “rules” came from 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12.


1Th 4:9 But I don’t need to write to you about the Christian love [fn] that should be shown among God’s people. For God himself has taught you to love one another.

1Th 4:10 Indeed, your love is already strong toward all the Christians [fn] in all of Macedonia. Even so, dear brothers and sisters, we beg you to love them more and more.

1Th 4:11 This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we commanded you before.

1Th 4:12 As a result, people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others to meet your financial needs.

Preacher Pat ended the sermon with this:

“How many people are going to be on the other side because of you? People are watching you.”

Definitely something to think about.
