Repay evil with blessing: 1 Peter 3:9: Reflection by Prayer Aid (Jane Pimenta)

Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9 
Our words have positive and negative power!   Blessing others is a divine action, a powerful action.  Someone has hurt us?  Let us let it go and bless…when we were growing up, when two people fought and each was giving the other grief we would say “tit for tat”   Tit for tat is not the plan of God, blessing others no matter how they great us, is God’s plan.  Forgive and forget the person is also not the plan of God… Forgive and bless is God’s plan.  God smiles on us when we bless, He smiles on our families, and on all we do, and ultimately we will inherit a blessing.  (Forgiving is difficult, but if it’s God’s command for us to forgive, we have to obey.  Excellent, Jane).
