1 Thessalonians 2:1-8

Entrusted With Good News

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Do you like to talk? Some people like to talk a lot and others would rather listen.

We are told, by experts, that women and girls talk more than men and boys. Some say women use about twenty thousand words in one day and men use about seven thousand. Do you think this is true?

How much do you think you actually talk during a day? It depends on a lot of things such as where you are, who you are with, and what you are doing.

What would we do without words? They are so powerful. Words help us understand each other, but they can also be hurtful if we’re not careful.

Regardless of how much we talk, we need to be sure that the way we speak and the words we use are pleasing to God.

The Bible teaches us that “… we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News (God’s love)…” (2:4).

It is a big responsibility to speak about God’s love. We are reminded to be true to who we are and speak the truth, knowing that God understands what is in our hearts.

God’s Spirit guides us in our actions and how we use our words. The “Good News” is that God loves us. We have been entrusted with that love.
