The scripture for today, June 28, is Luke 6:28f  as found in the New Testament of the Bible:  

"Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Do to others as you would have them do to you.”    

There was a book published several years ago entitled,  "Hurt People Hurt People."  There are some people out there who have been hurt and then turn bitter.  They lash out at everyone.  One method of lashing out is when someone tries to console someone who has lost a loved one in death by saying, "I know how you feel."  Then the hurt person lashes out at the other person and says, "You DON'T know how I feel!   How dare you pretend that you do!"  

That is a hurt person trying to hurt someone else.  It's as though they are bragging, "My hurt is so amazingly great, any effort on your part to understand is puny and not worthy of the greatness of my hurt."  

How do you react to your pain?  Do you run people off?  Or do people admire you for your courage?  When you feel cursed, do you curse back, or do you bless?
