1 Peter 4:1-2 The Message (MSG)

Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get your own way. Then you’ll be able to live out your days free to pursue what God wants instead of being tyrannized by what you want.

 

It’s hard to

Give without receiving

Overlook an offense

Be vulnerable

Repeatedly

See God in everything

Be a living sacrifice

Hope in all things

Get angry but not stay there

Have faith

Love regardless

Withhold judgement

Show mercy and grace

Forgive

Repeatedly

Believe the best

Start NOW

BUT

It’s harder not to

Be free, Beloved!
