30 The Holy Spirit of God has sealed you in Jesus Christ until you experience your full salvation. So never grieve the Spirit of God or take for granted his holy influence in your life.[a] 31 Lay aside bitter words, temper tantrums, revenge, profanity, and insults. 32 But instead be kind[b] and affectionate toward one another. Has God graciously forgiven you? Then graciously forgive one another in the depths of Christ’s love.
