We avoid retaliation or argument. We wouldn’t treat sick people that way. If we do, we destroy our chance of being helpful. We cannot be helpful to all people, but at least God will show us how to take a kindly and tolerant view of each and every one. Alcoholics Anonymous pg 67
“But if you are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Pray for the happiness of those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other cheek. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give what you have to anyone who asks you for it; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. Luke 6:27-28 NLT
Father, I thank you for the Golden Rule. Do unto others as I would have them do unto me. Help me to pray rather than insult and argue. Help me to return blessings for hurts. Help me to show your love in the midst of hate. In Jesus Name, Amen.
