Returning the Favors

9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9

We’ve inherited a remarkable blessing, should we not be extending blessings as well? Remember the story of the debtor forgiven of much who did not return the favor? Matthew 18:27

We should be eternally grateful for what has been done for us, which should work its way out as blessing all those with whom we come in contact.

How can we give out blessings? A kind word. A helping hand. A smile–don’t underestimate just one little smile!

In general, deference, magnanimity, cheerfulness, and hopefulness.
