Living Right With Wrong

with 5 comments

 

Living Right

 

Luke 17:1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come:

  • Wrong things happen to everyone, not just you.
  • Sometimes, the wrong isn’t fixed overnight and we are forced to live with what hurts us the most.
  • Our reaction to this wrong determines the outcome.
  • It will decide how you feel now and how you will feel later.
  • It also affects how God will feel about you in your tribulation.
  • An old man-made adage reminds us, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

 

Rom. 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

Rom. 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

 

David Had To Cope With Javelins Being Thrown At Him By The King.

Saul threw javelins at David but he just kept dodging them and never threw one back. He was doing his best to live right with wrong.

 

Are You Living With Angry People? Speak Kind Words.

Prov. 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

 

Are You Mistreated? Turn The Other Cheek.

Matt. 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

 

Did You Lose A Lawsuit? Give Them More Than They Required.

Matt. 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

 

Are You Coping With Unreasonable Demands? Go The Extra Mile.

Matt. 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

 

Forgive Without Limitation!

Matt. 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Matt. 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

 

Avoid The Company Of And Do Not Eat With These Types Of People:

  • Fornicators
  • Covetous People
  • Critical People
  • People Who Don’t Put God First
  • People With Addictions
  • Blackmailers

1Cor. 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

 

Do Not Hurt Those That Have Hurt You.

1Thess. 5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

Matt. 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

 

Leave Revenge Up To God. Don’t Ever Try To Get Even.

Rom. 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

 

Let The Lord Fight Your Battle.

Exo. 14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

 

Avoid These Destructive People:

2Tim. 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2Tim. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Tim. 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2Tim. 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2Tim. 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

 

Even Though They Are Not Nice To You, Treat Others Like You Want Them To Treat You.

Matt. 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

 

Don’t Take Your Brother To Court.

1Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

1Co 6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

1Co 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

1Co 6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

1Co 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

1Co 6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

 

Got A Problem Between You And Your Brother? Fix it God’s Way.

Mat 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

Mat 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

Mat 18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

 

Be A Peacemaker And You Will Be Called A Child Of God.

Matt. 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

 

Put A Time Limit On Your Displeasure.

Eph. 4:26 …let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

 

Rom. 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
