“It is better to suffer for doing good, if suffering should be God’s will, than to suffer for doing evil.” Peter’s instruction is to Christians living in a world in which they do not fit in. Let us always be ready to tell of Jesus Christ, the reason for our hope, but let it be with gentleness toward people and reverence for God. Are we suffering for Christ if our attitudes/behaviors are reflecting selfishness or pride rather than the character of Christ? How does this passage speak to me today? May my life reflect your character, O Jesus, my Savior.
