what's keith READING?

CUT DOWN . . . . . 1 Peter 3:9 in our sinful world, it is acceptable to tear people down verbally or to get back at them if we feel hurt.  Remembering Jesus’ teaching to turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:39), Peter encourages his readers to pay back wrongs by praying for the offenders.  In God’s kingdom, revenge is unacceptable behavior.  So is insulting a person, no matter how indirectly it is done.  Rise above getting back at those who hurt you.  Instead, pray for them.
