When you are mistreated, are you able to respond in love?
The most natural reaction to being hurt or wounded is to try to get even. But have you ever noticed that when you have a slip of your lip – that it never makes things better. Or you may feel better (for a moment) when you let off steam, but what about others that are scorched by your hot air explosion. The next time you are hurt, don’t foolishly explode, but nor should you stuff your anger. Express your feelings freely to God. He is the One who will hold your confidence and give you His heart to love those who have hurt you.
