1 Peter 3:8-12
8Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. 9Do 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. 10For,
“Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from deceitful speech.
11He must turn from evil and do good;
he must seek peace and pursue it.
12For 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.”
From these verses list what a believer will do if she/he does what is right(eous)….
live in harmony w/ one another
love as brothers
do not repay with evil
do not repay with insult
bless those who do evil and insult you
keep tongue from evil
keep lips from deceitful speech (lying)
turn from evil
Lists; I like to make ’em, but they sometimes overwhelm me. So many things to remember, so many things I need to do, as a believer.
If we let it, it can become the only focus, the means to the end, a list of good deeds to win the love of God.
We need to remember, we already have the love of the Almighty God, even when we were still sinners, He loved us.
We are given the Holy Spirit to remind us and help us to do such things as the list above. Because God loves us.
