Helping Others Prepare for Eternity

Friday- Our lack of pride toward our Enemies

Romans 12:15-17 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.

Challenge: Paul points out that we are not to be prideful or conceited toward others and we are not to repay anyone evil for evil. Our love for God demands that we are to be an example of right behavior to the world even when wronged. Do you struggle with practicing this aspect of love? I do. My sense of right and wrong and my stubborn pride get in the way of loving someone when I have been wronged. Think of someone you have difficulty loving that has wronged you. Write down how God would want you to behave around this person and something you can do for them in humble service. Pray that God will give you the strength to have the right attitude and response if you are rejected or wronged in this service. How did it go?
