Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. Ephesians 5:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
A good example of obscene stories in like how many women you have had sex with, how much you drank on the weekend, how you are such a great fighter. Not only are they vulgar but they are also big headed (you are full of pride).
Foolish talk could be about talking about TV shows, movies and sports as if they are of ultimate importance.
How about gossip?
Not only is it foolish but it is also destructive. You are hurting those you are gossiping about.
Course jokes are the type with a lot of vulgarity in them. They usually center around sex.
Jehovah is so good to us we should have a huge repertoire of events to share with others with cheerful gratitude for the Giver. These should be simple and true. Yet, in telling them they should also inspire others to have a deep desire to what Jesus in their lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah’ Immeku (The Lord Is With You Judges 6:12 ) for blessing me with countless awesome experiences in my walk with You as well as the numerous quiet times we have enjoyed together, especially in Your Cathedral- nature.
I love to share these wonderful times with others so as to give glory to You and to encourage others to desire to join Your Holy Family.
I exalt You in the name of He who was walked many decades with me through feast and famine, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
