Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. – Romans 12:14
Dear Heavenly Father,
My first reaction when someone tries to hurt me is to retaliate in kind. I’m tempted to even the playing field. My natural inclination is to stab them with my words or freeze them out by ignoring them. You call me to do something totally counter-intuitive to me. You call me to bless them with my words and actions. I can see the benefit of such amazing grace because I have experienced blessing from you even though I have criticized you at times in my soul. Your blessing made me believe in your love. I want my blessing to help people believe in your love too. So, give me your supernatural strength to stop getting even and start giving blessing.

When someone hurts you it’s your turn to be Jesus.
