BIBLE MEDITATION: ?Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.? 1 Peter 3:16
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Have you ever been criticized? Maybe blamed for something you didn?t do? Or been unjustly slandered? You are not alone. Jesus was the whipping boy of much criticism and slander in His day. Was He worried? No. You too, must not worry when others speak falsely. Just give that to the Lord. Author/Pastor Peter Lord told me one day, ?When anybody says anything bad about me, I just say, ?Thank God they don?t know any more.? ? Jesus tells us, ?When they criticize you, just roll that over onto Me. I understand and I am in charge. You just trust in Me.?
ACTION POINT: Lift up your hands as a gesture of giving to God all of those people who have criticized or judged you over the years. Ask Him to forgive them. Ask Him to give you grace and strength to love them.
