Lesson 6, “Pursue Peace with Doves and Dragons” 1 Peter 3:8-12
I have learned so much from these lessons and this one is especially important as it is about the church and how we need to work together with harmony, sympathy, love, and humility.
Next to the case study about a mother and her two grown daughters, my favorite section was the “Living Stone Story” about a pastor’s wife and how she responded to the disappointment from a woman in the church. This woman said the wife had not met her needs, disappointed her, and was not a good pastor’s wife. The pastor’s wife had a clear conscience and spoke to the woman nicely, but firmly about how her focus was on obeying God and that she (the pastor’s wife) or perhaps someone else was who God had in mind to help this woman meet her needs.
I know that I need to be just like that pastor’s wife, exuding harmony, sympathy, love, and humility for my church family. I will pray to God every day, so that I can make that happen.
I hope you all have had a wonderful week and I will inform you next week about my thoughts on “Lesson Seven.”
