Thank you Lord, for teaching us daily. Thank you Lord, for reminding us of the blessing of not getting even when we are hurt or mistreated. Please strengthen us and heal us when we are mistreated by others. Help us to fix our eyes on you and not be derailed when people behave badly toward us.
Lord, when people treat us badly, let their behavior bring out the best in us. Help us follow Christ’s example in every way, growing to be more and more like you every day. Help us to live a life of love and peace. In Jesus’ name we pray – Amen.
