I stumbled on a selection of writing earlier today. It had appeared in an online publication that made poor use of it. I ran it through AI and realized,

“Wow, this is like uncovering a long buried treasure, cleaning off the grime and seeing it for what it truly is, without layers of interpretation that distort its meaning.”

The Revised Version

Here is the revised version of the text. You can see the reference to the original later below:

  • Offer guidance to those who act without considering the consequences.
  • Support and uplift those who are disheartened.
  • Assist those in need and show patience to everyone.
  • Ensure that harm is not returned with harm. Strive for the well-being of each other and all people.
  • Find joy in every moment.
  • Remain open-minded and grateful in all situations.
  • Keep your enthusiasm and curiosity alive.
  • Be open to new ideas and experiences, but critically evaluate them. Embrace what is beneficial.
  • Avoid harmful actions and influences.

Pretty amazing, right? Quite humanist, and wise. That’s why you may find it different from the source, I Thessalonians 5:14-22.
