Respond to Abuse with a Blessing

1 Peter 3:8-12 NRSV

Do not repay evil for evil or abuse for abuse; but, on the contrary, repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called—that you might inherit a blessing. (1 Peter 3:9)

When we encounter circumstances which tempt us to get even, remember that guidance, wisdom, and good judgment can set us free. Let God handle the rest.
