Where Does the Blessing Lie?

Description

Here’s the secret to a blessed and peaceful life: Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath and bless others when they hurt you. 

How do you react when people do malicious things to you? When they spitefully wrong or hurt you? What emotions rise up inside of you? 

In situations like these, it’s definitely normal to feel angry, bitter, and even vengeful ... But the Bible shows us that these swirling eddies of emotion don’t have to last. It gives us a different path to follow, a path of much greater hope. 

The Bible says, “‘Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.” (Ephesians 4:26-27)  

It also tells us that we shouldn’t be “...returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.” (1 Peter 3:9)  

Here’s the secret to a blessed and peaceful life: don’t let the sun go down on your wrath and bless others when they hurt you. 

I know, and God knows, that it’s not easy ... yet, He knows what is best for us. 

That’s where the blessing lies ... at the end of this road. God is right alongside you, and His Spirit will give you the strength to accomplish what is right. We believe it, and we're praying for you!
