You Do You (Scripture Sunday)

For what credit is it if,  when you are beaten for your faults,  you take it patiently?  But when you do good and suffer,  if you take it patiently,  this is commendable before God.

1 Peter 2:20

Hope important is this message?! Ya,  of course you should treasure your punishment when you do wrong.  But if you have done no wrong and you are being punished… turn the other cheek. Take it. Sure you have done no wrong, but the punishment is not a reflection on you,  or who you are as a person. It reflects badly on those who allow the punishment,  or carry it out themselves.  You have done no wrong,  continue to do so. Be patient,  it will get better with time,  and you will be a stronger,  better person for it. 

This is a lesson I’m working on in my own life. I’m going to do me,  and not let the others opinion of my work or capabilities gold me back.
