Respond, don't react

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened." But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. -1 Peter 3:14-17

My lesson learned today (and to learn always): Don't react but rather respond graciously.

Special thanks to my beloved John, my disciple and accountability partner Carmie and co-blogger na ka-email ko na si dr.Elroi na nanalangin for me and with me last night when I got mad with a colleague...

And to thanks to You, my dear Holy Spirit for speaking and convicting me to do what is right and pleasing before You... Thank You, Lord, for picking me up in Your grace!

At may bonus pa! Minsan ko lang bisitahin ang blog ng bunso kong kapatid pero yung mga minsan na yun, "divine appointments" tlga eh... In his blog, I saw this:

(“Anyone can become angry—that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way—this is not easy.”


I am sorry if I can't direct you to his blog, I'm not allowed and not supposed to, per Majar. ;-)

So there... Thank You ulet, Lord!
