Responding Well by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/14

“She was so rude! I’m going to get her back!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The Bible has a lot to say about the way we respond to people who hurt us. Things like: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.”

“He drives me crazy!”

Nancy: “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you.”

“I’ll give her a taste of her own medicine!”

Nancy: “Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.”

“She said she was sorry. Yeah, right.”

Nancy: “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”

Today it’s likely that someone’s going to hurt, annoy, or inconvenience you. The question is: Will you respond biblically with patience and forgiveness?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “My soul was filled and overwhelmed with light, and love, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and seemed just ready to go away from the body. I could scarcely refrain from expressing my joy aloud, in the midst of the service. I had in the mean time, an overwhelming sense of the glory of God, as the Great Eternal All, and of the happiness of having my own will entirely subdued to his will. I knew that the foretaste of glory, which I then had in my soul, came from him, that I certainly should go to him, and should, as it were, drop into the Divine Being, and be swallowed up in God.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
