Bible: 1 Peter 3:8-12

Suffering for Doing Good

3:8 Finally, all of you be harmonious, 1  sympathetic, affectionate, compassionate, and humble. 3:9 Do not return evil for evil or insult for insult, but instead bless 2  others 3  because you were called to inherit a blessing. 3:10 For

the one who wants to love life and see good days must keep 4  his tongue from evil and his lips from uttering deceit.

3:11 And he must turn away from evil and do good;

he must seek peace and pursue it.

3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are 5  upon the righteous and his ears are open to their prayer.

But the Lord’s face is against those who do evil. 6
