BE COOL AND LOVE PEOPLE
(Refuse To Be Offended By Those In Your World)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Luke 6:28 MSG “…Love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
You should never find yourself offended or losing your cool over the unpleasant attitudes of others towards you. It makes no difference if they tease, wind you up, mistreat or take undue advantage of you; maintain the right attitude of love. Someone else’s bad attitude should never change your good behaviour. If anyone has a bad attitude, that’s their problem, but your responsibility is to walk in love towards all.
There shouldn’t ever be people or someone you don’t like or decide never to talk to, irrespective of what they may have done to you. The Word tells us to “…not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellowmen, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!” (1 Peter 3:11 AMPC). God never promised that we’ll be well treated by everybody. You may not be treated right; you may not be treated the way you want or think you deserve to be treated; that’s not what’s important!
What’s important is your response in whatever circumstances you find yourself; that’s where the blessing really is. Always emulate Jesus. He said, “Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you” (Luke 6:28). He wasn’t vengeful at the wicked men who crucified Him, though the pain was real, and He felt it. They spat at Him. He asked for water, they gave Him vinegar to drink. Think about how they mistreated Jesus; yet, He said, “…Father, forgive them; they don’t know what they’re doing…” (Luke 23:34 MSG).
Keep walking in love. Let that be something you decide to do more than ever before. Always remember that, irrespective of how you’re treated, you can never be disadvantaged (Romans 8:28). If you’d live and act according to the Word, you’ll continually walk in blessings, and nothing would truncate your joy or dissipate your faith and progress in the Lord.
