Don't give the devil a chance.
Those who have been stealing must never steal again. Instead, they must work. They must do something useful with their own hands. Then they will have something to give to people in need.
Don't let any evil talk come out of your mouths. Say only what will help to build others up and meet their needs. Then what you say will help those who listen.
Do not make God's Holy Spirit sad. He marked you with a seal for the day when God will set you completely free.
Get rid of all hard feelings, anger and rage. Stop all fighting and lying. Put away every form of hatred.
Be kind and tender to one another. Forgive each other, just as God forgave you because of what Christ has done.
