Turn Your Observations into Prayers
Turn the other cheek doesn’t mean to leave that cheek unguarded so that it can be easily slapped again. It means that you should never automatically respond to negativity with negativity. But, God does sometimes prescribe self-defense.
The golden rule is not “do unto others as they do unto you.” Rather, it is “do unto others as God would have you do.” Receivership directed prayers and actions are always more constructive than reactive or over-reactive behaviors.
