Rom 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
1Pe 2:23 Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously:
If you've ever been mistreated, spoken to harshly, or just plain insulted, let us think on the ways of the Lord Jesus Himself. All the accusations that came to Him, yet He reviled not back. Kept His mouth quiet and committed it to the Father who judged righteously.
At the same time, do know that when we walk in love it does not mean we are to just be a door mat for someone to walk all over with their dirt.
Our life must be Holy Spirit led, and you'll know the what to do as you just be still, and listen for His voice of direction for the response to give. Sometimes love is up front in the face, and other times it is just simply quiet.
The love that has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit is a un-selfish love, it does not require for someone to deserve it before it is given to them. Love will always win. Just listen for it, the heartbeat of the Father.
In the perfect love and peace of Jesus,
Gary and Rhonda
