God's Word for Wednesday, 9/13/17

Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here’s what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you’re worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he’s asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things.
1 Peter 3:8 MSG

Wonderful in theory but - at least for me - so hard in practice.

It is definitely hard to put into practice always in real life, TB. I agree.

But good to remember to try and put into practice, and pray to the Lord about it.

Thank you, Reverend.

Like so many things in life, TB, it's a journey & a goal toward which we must all strive.

Exactly, Linda. Thank you.
