1 Thessalonians 5:11

Yesterday on our Faith Builders Ministry site I posted on Proverbs 15:1 and today’s verse seems a natural follow on.

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do (KJV)

Paul points two things out that should be obvious to everyone; the primary duties of every true Christian include comforting, encouraging and building each other up. He even commends the church at Thessalonica for doing just that.

What may not be so obvious in today’s day and age is the fact that this can not be accomplished in isolation; note Paul says: “comfort yourselves together”. Also as we noted yesterday this can only be done by those using soft, gentle and thoughtful words.
