"For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. For to this end were you called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps..." ~ 1st Peter 2:19-21

Scripture of the Day - Peter (IPet.2:19-21)
I had an incident today in which my boss mishandled a situation very poorly with me. I refused to get drawn into the drama and elected to turn the other cheek. Unbeknownst to me a member of the local gem and mineral club observed the entire incident from outside the booth and after my boss left to go to the bathroom commended me for how I composed myself and responded to the dust-up (and how I didn't respond but could have). By the end of the day all was well and I felt I had grown inside as a man and in my relationship with God.
