Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.
-1 Peter 3:13-15a
I read this today and thought I’d share it.
1 Peter 3
13Can anyone really harm you for being eager to do good deeds? 14Even if you have to suffer for doing good things, God will bless you. So stop being afraid and don’t worry about what people might do.
The way I interpret this is…it’s great advice for those moments when you have a virtual debate of sorts between doing something or living a certain way to please God and doing something or living a certain way to please others. It’s a debate I’d assume everyone has throughout their lives, whether consciously or subconsciously. I know I do.
It’s just nice to know that when that debate happens, something like this is here to show us which way to go.
Have a great day.
