Once I saw somebody just chewing out a man like crazy. I don’t have any idea what the problem was, but I remember thinking, “That’s probably somebody’s dad.” And then I wondered how I would feel if somebody talked to my dad with total disrespect.
Here’s what the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:15 (NIV). Paul was addressing the church in Thessalonica. “Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.”
That sounds like a pretty tall order. The world tells you to get even, but God tells you to be kind. If you are a Christian, I hope you make a practice of being kind. Sometimes it’s VERY difficult to do, but God always seems to know the better way! Just the other day, I was having problems with a coworker when Debra reminded me, “Pray for them right now!” Now that will change your attitude! Gwen~
