By his words and example, Paul encouraged the Thessalonians to live in such a way that would be worthy of God.
Is there anything about your daily life that would embarrass God?
What do people think of God from watching you?
We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you to share in his Kingdom and glory. – 1 Thessalonians 2:12
