“Here’s what I propose: ‘Don’t hit back at all.’ If someone strikes you, stand there and take it.” ~~Jesus

Jesus challenges not to retaliate. It is in our core, when someone hurts us, to strike back. Jesus has a different way. Don’t hit back at all. Just take it. Agree with your adversary.

Jesus has higher standards for us than what the world expects. He expects us to be full of the love of God. Love acts differently. Love is kind and patient. Love does not retaliate.

May I love like God. May I not be defensive and retaliate.

“Here’s what I propose: ‘Don’t hit back at all.’ If someone strikes you, stand there and take it.” ~~Jesus
