Submission: The Path Down is the Way Up

Sunday, January 18, 2015

1 Peter 3:8-13 

Putting the good of others in mind before our own leads to peace and blessing both now and in eternity. Peter is teaching that we should have a humble, submitted attitude in all of our relationships, not just the examples he gave in the preceding passages. Rather than focusing on our rights as individuals, focus on caring and tenderness, and the eternal good of others. This has the practical effect of giving others less cause to want to harm us. If we are willing to let go of our own interests, than God will look after our interests for us.
