Do not show yourselves being heated up to evildoers.Do not get envious to those doing unrighteousness.

The seeming success of evildoers may prompt feelings of envy.
But will our getting upset improve the situation?
Does envy of the apparent advantages that the wicked enjoys alter the outcome for them?
Most definitely not!
And there is REALLY no need for us to be "heated up".
Why not?
The psalmist says:
For like grass, they will speedily withers, and like green new grass,they will fade away.

Green new grass may look pretty but soom they will shrivel and die.
Likewise with evildoers.Their apparent prosperity is not permanent.
When they die, their ill gotten wealth cannot help them.
Justice will finally catches up with everyone.
The wages sins pays is death.
Evildoers and all who are unrighteous will finally receive their "wages" and no more.
references: (Psalms 37:2, 35,36,49:16,17 Romans 6;23)
What a profitless life.

our old personality

Put away our old personality which conforms to your former form of conduct and... put on the new personality which was created according to God's will. Ephesians 4:22,23

Before making a dedication to serve God Jehovah through baptism,many of us had to make significant changes so that our dedication/vow would be meaningful and acceptable to Him.

In other words, before saying YES as respect to our dedication/vow/baptism,to God, we had to say NO to un acceptable former way of life.

Certain feaures of our old personality that prospective servants of God (to be His Witness) must put away are condemned by God's words (laws)in the Bible.

What are they?

Paul enumerated some in his letter to the Corinthians saying,

"Neither fornicators nor idolaters, nor adulterers,nor men who sleep with men,nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards,nor revilers,nor extortioners will inherit God's Kingdom."

He then added; Yet that is what some of you were.

Notice were not are.

1Cor 6;9-11

Bon weekend a tous!
