Helping Others Prepare for Eternity

Wednesday- Our lack of pride toward our Friends

1 Peter 3:8-9 8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Challenge: Peter points that we are called to be different than the world. By Jesus’ example and sacrifice we are called to be compassionate, humble and repay evil with blessing. Write down something that you can humbly do for a friend that shows you are following Jesus’ example of being humble and serving. Show your love to your friend by putting it into action.
