Responding Differently

1 Corinthians 4:12When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – Christians are called to respond differently to things than the world would respond. We are not to return curses for curses, to resist persecution or respond to slander harshly.

My Advice – Be a blessing to others, even those who wish you ill, learn to endure hardship and offer kinds words to all even those who slander you. Do not respond in a worldly, but rather in a Christlike manner.
