Live In Harmony With One Another
"Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another;
be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but
with blessing, because to this you were called so that
you may inherit a blessing.
For, 'Whoever would love life and see good days must
keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful
He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek
peace and pursue it.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His
ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the
Lord is against those who do evil."
1Peter 3: 8-12
These are some of the rules for holy living as we await the triumphant return of our Lord Jesus Christ- the King of kings and the Lord of lords. We are admonished to live in harmony with everyone, even with unbelievers whom we must attract to our way of thinking by the good examples they see in us. We must also be compassionate and humble and must love one another as brothers and sisters. We must never repay evil for evil and insult for insult. Let the Lord avenge us from those who malign us or do evil against us. We must also not resort to gossiping and slander but we must reserve our tongues to praising God and giving glory to His name. If we continue to do good and glorify God in our lives, we can be assured that the eyes of God are always fixed on us and He is attentive to our prayers. The Lord blesses those who delight in Him.
