Payback.

“Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” (1 Peter 3:9)

Bless those who curse me—are you kidding? Seek out those who hate me and bless them—are you insane? Repaying evil with good seems to not make any sense, but God’s ways are not our ways. He has a better view. If we have given our lives to Him, we need to trust Him and do it His way.

We have a choice when our human logic and His Word seem to collide. Often there is an almost paradoxical set of options. He does know better than us, so trust Him to have the answer and follow His ways, and the way becomes clearer.

It is not easy. It is a narrow path, but it is a higher way—a true way.

Quick Prayer. “Sometimes you just don’t make sense, help me to trust you and do it your way.” Amen
