David denHartog teaches from Ephesians 4:1-6 on “Balancing the Scales,” the first of a four part series, Connecting in Community. Scales in Biblical times had one side for holding a standard unit of measurement, and the other side holding what needed to be weighed. In Ephesians 4:1, Paul is beseeching us to balance the scales of our walk and the blessings we have in Christ. Paul gives an appeal, attitudes to embrace, and a basis for the appeal; all based on the charge in verse 1.
