and don't give the Devil an opportunity.
The thief must no longer steal. Instead, he must do honest work with his own hands, so that he has something to share with anyone in need.
No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone in need,a in order to give grace to those who hear.
And don't grieve God's Holy Spirit, who sealed youb for the day of redemption.
All bitterness, anger and wrath, insult and slander must be removed from you, along with all wickedness.
And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave youc in Christ.
