3. Seek peace even if they aren’t looking for it. (Romans 12:18)
4. Set boundaries, love from a distance and keep yourself from harm. (Psalm 104:9)
5. Seek God. (Hebrews 12:2)
Jesus Died for Everyone.
“Knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)
Honoring those who are disrespectful may not be easy, but it is something we are called to do in response to the sacrifice made on the cross. None of us are perfect, but that doesn’t mean we are to withhold honor from people who are dishonorable.
Learning this principle is not something any of us will ever master, but it is something we can learn daily by refining ourselves through the cross of Christ.
