I READ: Romans 12 : 12 – 17

Genesis 37 records the life story of Joseph and his brothers. Joseph’s brothers envied and hated him for no reason. They put him into the well and then sold him to the Egyptians. Through it all, He chose not to be angry. He also chose not to seek revenge or felt bitter with what he had to experience in his life. Joseph believed that everything that happened in his life would eventually bring him good. Today, let’s live life with joy and choose not to avenge crime with evil. Choose to forgive. Satan uses bad events in our lives to destroy, but God will turn them into good for us.

I DECLARE: Romans 12:18 – If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

I DO: What action will I take today after meditating on the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
