Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 2:23
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
It’s in our nature to try to protect ourselves when we are being attacked whether it is insults, criticism, lies or some other form of verbal abuse. We want to fight back and retaliate with more of the same, we want to defend ourselves with our own arguments. But when Jesus was being insulted and suffering he did not retaliate. He put his trust in his heavenly Father and let God defend him. When you feel attacked, instead of fighting back bring your troubles to God, put your trust in him and let him be your defender and fight your battles for you.
