Finally, all of you be like-minded and sympathetic, love one another, and be compassionate and humble, not paying back evil for evil or insult for insult but, on the contrary, giving a blessing, since you were called for this, so that you may inherit a blessing. But even if you should suffer for righteousness, you are blessed. Do not fear them or be intimidated... For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil. 1 Peter 3: 8-9, 14, 17
The world we are in, and the path we are all on has been set by God. He’s already given us directions on how to navigate through this, if not in the real world sense with practical solutions, but definitely with his spiritual answer to life’s real hostility. This is hard now, as we are being pressed in, and we see more and more opposition in almost all facets of our lives. I know I need to let more of this go, and leave it up to God. Lord help me, please.
