    Peter; this is such an important thing! How "natural" it is to respond with self defense when someone says or does us wrong or unfairly (real or imagined)! But we have been given light that we are not made to act like animals, but like God: and "natural" is something that we are to keep under subjection in obedience to the Spirit of God He has put within us. May the Lord's grace prevail for us!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    This whole chapter provides guidelines for Christian living. Key guidelines are- Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. live peaceably with all men. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

    Romans 12:4-5 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we should all be like minded as Apostle Paul said, if one of us hurt, we all hurt. Jesus is the head of the Church Body, let's Love one another in Christ not in foolish words.
