Do you live to please God?

What are practical ways to please God from 1Thess 4?

In what ways does your love for other Christians need to grow/increase?

What does it mean to “aim to lead a quiet life?”

What does work have to do with pleasing God?

How does the way I live my life affect nonbelievers around me?

How do we balance staying “lovingly connected” with the
