You are Invited

If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Luke 6:30

Today you are invited to consider how you respond to someone who speaks or acts against you. Are you immediately defensive? Do you attack? Do you talk about them in other places and speak against them? Or do you do as Jesus suggests in this verse? What does He mean? What is happening in your life at the moment where He would prefer a gentle response rather than an aggressive or angry one? How would that affect the situation? How do you feel about responding in this way? Speak to Jesus about any struggles you may be having in this regard and listen for His reply.

May God bless you with gentleness, kindness, understanding and whatever else you may need in difficult situations where people attack you or speak against you.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
