Follow That Which is Good

See that no man render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Thessalonians 5:15

How quickly we want to get back at someone and return evil for evil! Slights, insults, open rejection- hurtful words and actions that sometimes come our way. Our immediate response is to retaliate, to show we will not stand for it and to silence the source. But that strategy, appealing to the flesh and encouraged by the world deepens the problem. If that is your situation today, commit the matter to the Lord Who experienced the same (1 Peter 2:23) and watch how He will work with you and for you.  -M. Kolchin

Jesus, meek and gentle, Son of God most High, Gracious, loving Saviour, hear Thy children's cry. -G. Prynne
