one mind

Finally, all of you be of one mind, sympathetic, lovers of your fellow believers, compassionate, and modest in your opinion of yourselves. Don’t pay back evil for evil or insult for insult. Instead, give blessing in return. You were called to do this so that you might inherit a blessing. For those who want to love life and see good days should keep their tongue from evil speaking and their lips from speaking lies. They should shun evil and do good; seek peace and chase after it. The Lord’s eyes are on the righteous and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord cannot tolerate those who do evil. (1 Peter 3:8-12, CEB)

We are to be of one mind. You may say we can’t do that because we don’t always agree. Well, do you always agree with yourself? If you said yes, then I want to know how you do it because I don’t always agree with myself.

We are called to be sympathetic, meaning we look to understand even when we don’t. And to be lovers of fellow believers, meaning we do not call them not fellow believers because their lifestyle doesn’t fit our mold of what a believer is. We are to be compassionate, which means we show compassion to everyone. And don’t do evil. Do not cause others harm. If your faith causes you to do things that would harm others, then you are not doing what Peter says we are to be as followers of Christ. Simple.

Don’t do evil. Love everyone.

Loving People. Loving God.
