1 Peter 2 B

“When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.” 2:23

This continues to be one of my favorite qualities of Jesus (and the one I have to reach the furthest for myself).

It takes a truly humble person to not retaliate when someone criticizes or threatens them. Someone secure in their identity in Christ, firmly planted in his love.

The last sentence of that verse really gives us something to hold on to: entrust yourself to God, who executes perfect judgment.

What part of the chapter, or quality of Christ, did you connect with today?
