SPEAKER: Troy Champ
How do you respond when someone sins against you? Do you sin back? Jesus doesn’t want us to see conflict as winning and losing. It’s not just a choice between fight or flight. He gives us a third option: love. If we respond with love, it reverses the dynamic and breaks the cycle. Two wrongs don’t make a right, they just make the world a worse place to live. So, break the cycle and choose love. Don’t fight back, love back.
Identify the individuals or occasions in which you’ll find it the most challenging to love back. Spend some time this week thinking and praying. Bring these relationships directly to God and ask Him to help you trust His way of living in real time.
