Bye Bye Bullying, Hello Kindness
National Bullying Prevention Month is held during October to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. It made me wonder ... is "bullying" ever mentioned in the Bible? Well, as you might guess, it is not. However, the Bible does teach us a lot about how to deal with people that do us wrong. Romans 12:21 tells us to overcome evil with good. Proverbs 15:1 says "A gentle answer turns away wrath" and verse 25:21 says "If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink." That's what we are teaching here at LCA, and that's how God treats us every day - although we have our failures and shortcomings, He continues to forgive and pour out His love and goodness to us. We can take the wind out of a bully's sails, when we pay back evil with good! "Be ye kind one to another!"
