  1. Worthy Character

Integrity of the Messenger

For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, 1 Thessalonians 2:3 (ESV)

Be a God Pleaser

not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. 1 Thessalonians 2:4b (ESV)

  1. Caring as a Mother & Father

Mother’s Care

  • Gentle
  • With deep affection
  • With sacrificial love
  • With unselfish labor

7  For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you,  8  nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. 2 Thessalonians 3:7-9 (ESV)

Father’s Care

  • Stay accountable
  • Walk in a manner worthy of God

10  You are witnesses, and God also, how holy and righteous and blameless was our conduct toward you believers.  11  For you know how, like a father with his children,  12  we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. 1 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (ESV)
