Instead …

Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

~ Ephesians 4:32 [NLT]

The word “instead”  implies a choice, a difference, or an alternative path we as Believers can take when interacting with the world around us! We can instead show other kindness, instead keep our hearts soft and open, instead be willing to forgive others when they wrong us, and when we do these things we are showing the world God’s way. Let’s not be influenced by our culture that tells us it’s okay to be rude, closed off, and that we should hold a grudge but rather be those that instead follow Jesus’ example with our actions and words.
