Do Good And Silence The Dummies

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

1 Peter 2:15

For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people.

O-bservation:

St. Peter instructed all believers that by doing good they would silence the crazy talk of not so intelligent people.

A-pplication:

Have you ever had a person say ridiculous things about you because of your faith in God? I’m talking about observations that border on the insane. I know I have, and my first inclination is to go after them. Not physically, but verbally or in debate style. I suppose that works sometimes and indeed there is a need for the defense of the Gospel, known as Apologetics, but Peter’s instruction works the best. Just do good! Even Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Mt. 5:16). So if Jesus laid down the principal originally, and Peter builds on the principal, then the only way to operate as “Followers Of Jesus” when spoken evil of is to “Do Good And Silence The Dummies.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

Help me stop talking when they start talking and DO GOOD instead. Amen
