ACCEPTING BEING CHEATED/WRONGED
READ 1 CORINTHIANS 6:1-11
MEMORIES:

The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?

(1 Corinthians 6:7)
Here is a forgotten verse. Few obey its teaching. But think of the conflicts that would be settled, if a revival would bring this verse into daily experience. Lawsuit would be dropped. Feuds would be ended. Church quarrels would be forgotten. Meditate on these life changing questions: Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? Most professing Christians react just like the world reacts: demanding their rights.
No wonder so few are moved to salvation by observing Christians in action.
How will your life change, if you decided to take wrong and allow yourself to be defrauded?
Will your drop a lawsuit?
Will you forget an old debt?
Will you forego sending a blistering letter?
Will you be reconciled to one who has wronged you?
Will you stop fighting over an inheritance?
Will you stop telling your sober story about being cheated by others?
Notice Paul's interesting advice. He says certain Christians at Corinth are defrauding others, by not allowing themselves to be defrauded. Stop those retaliatory steps. If any quarrel or case is unresolved, do not be the one with irreconcilable stand. Jesus was never wrong (for once), yet, consider what He willing accepted.
PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, help believers to be wise in the way we conduct ourselves, everywhere, every time.
2. May we be strengthened and embolden to take wrongs, with the intention of influencing unbelievers, positively for Christ.
3. Whatever is gain to me, I henceforth count but loss for the sake of Christ. Help my resolve, oh God in Jesus name.
EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: EZEKIEL 11-15
