How to Become a Person Who Can Bless and Curse Not?
One of the most distinctive aspects of Jesus' way is his instructions to "love your enemies" (Matthew 5:44) and to "bless those who curse you" (Luke 6:28). This is a hallmark of our discipleship to Jesus.
The apostles passed on this teaching too. Paul writes, "Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse" (Romans 12:14). And Peter puts it like this: "not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead" (1 Peter 3:9).
So how can you become the kind of person who lives this way routinely?
In this episode, we reflect on 1 Peter 3:9-12 to think through how we can learn to bless those who curse us.
