Re:Verse passage – 1 Peter 2:18-25 (day seven)

Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. vs 18

By the grace of God, our human institutions have begun to realize the injustices of our past as we have sought to eradicate slavery across the globe. It is that same grace of God that we as individuals are imparted with to endure the injustices that linger in its wake. What becomes hard to swallow is when we realize that we are called to love those who are unjust. It is one thing to suck it up and endure injustice from them, but it is another to love them in the midst of it. Love is the only way that Jesus endured the cross. Love is the only way the Father endures our constant rebellion. Love not only will be the way we endure the injustices of this world, it is the cure!
