Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. ~1 Peter 3:8&9
YOU ARE CALLED. These three words are so powerful. YOU ARE CALLED. Soak it in. Believe it. YOU ARE CALLED. When it becomes truth for you, live it.
YOU ARE CALLED to live in harmony with those around you. YOU ARE CALLED to be sympathetic, to love, and to be compassionate to those who cross your path this week. YOU ARE CALLED to live humbly, to be humble in your actions. And here is the tough one...YOU ARE CALLED to be kind even when you have been wronged.."do not repay evil with evil, insult with insult".
YOU ARE CALLED.
As I was looking for verses to pray over each of my family members this week and a verse for my blog family (that is you!), this one, for God's reason which I don't fully understand at this point, this verse He has chosen for me to pray over you this week. No matter what lies ahead-in the good and in the bad-remember YOU ARE CALLED to live out all these things. Be a blessing this week friend.
You are indeed a blessing to me.
