Now, this is the goal: to live in harmony with one another and demonstrate affectionate love, sympathy, and kindness toward other believers. Let humility describe who you are as you dearly love one another.
Never retaliate when someone treats you wrongly, nor insult those who insult you, but instead, respond by speaking a blessing over them—because a blessing is what God promised to give you. (1 Peter 3:8)
I remember my secretary once told me a story of how as a girl, her mother slapped her for calling her brother stupid. When she asked her mother why she had been slapped for such an innocuous word, her mother responded, “It’s not for what you said; it’s for what you meant!”
Lord, please help us to know we live ever before you, in thought, word - and deed. Amen.
