• “A woman can become a blessing to many (even to the one who harms her) through what she has learnt of God in her sorrows! To become a woman of God, one must be prepared to face many trials. Like the sandalwood tree that imparts its fragrance to the axe that cuts it.” – Dr. Annie poonen

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.
