WRONGED IN HONOR OF GOD




To allow ourselves to be wronged by our fellow Christians without
pressing the issue is far better than to take the matter to a public
court in front of unbelievers. What they will see is an example of
Christians who are not practicing what they preach. This is dishonoring to God and His working of love through us. Love does not keep an account of wrongs.

Heavenly Father, give us spiritual maturity to honor you by not
insisting that wrongs committed against us by fellow Christians
be satisfied. Fill us with your love, In Jesus' name.

Read 1 Corinthians 6:7

"The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been
completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? (NIV)

"Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law
one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?" (KJV)

Amen Mr. Shrink

It's not an easy thing to do, but it's been my experience over the past 30 plus years that nothing in the Christian is.

Philippians 4:13 (New King James Version)
I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.
