I Peter 3:8-12 | LCA Reading Plan

Suffering For Doing Good
8-12 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.
Reflection: How agreeable, sympathetic, loving, compassionate and humble are you? Who are you freely living this out towards? Who are you withholding this from? Who do you need to be a blessing to this week?
