It’s reasonable to assume that being a Christian is not easy… And what about being a GOOD Christian?… Well, sometimes that seems like a huge mountain to climb! I’ve been a Christian my whole life & it seems I’m just now getting around to making the GOOD Christian leap! For me, that’s a process of making thoughtful & difficult life decisions that I know will upgrade my soul to a higher place. Blessing someone who has hurt you is about as Christlike as it gets… Walk with me as I attempt to execute a very flawed version of grace… I’ve made the choice to be a blessing to someone who hurt my career a few years ago & now he himself is hurting… This has to be a blessing beyond prayer. I’m determined this has to be a gesture that will change his perspective on life & my perspective on faith at the same time. Pray for me.
Eye for Eye
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
