Do The Unexpected–Bless Not Curse

by Hazel Straub

Honor the King of kings today, blessing and not cursing. To those who irritate, show graciousness. To those who degrade, show love. Season your interactions today with love and mercy!

Never retaliate when someone treats you wrongly, nor insult those who insult you, but instead, respond by speaking a blessing over them—because a blessing is what God promised to give you. (1 Peter 3:9 TPT)
