When someone criticizes us, our instinct is to become defensive or respond in anger. In today’s polarized world, disagreements, even amongst friends, become sharp, heated and aggressive. But God calls us in 1 Peter 3 to not return evil for evil, and instead bless those who insult us. In this video, Dr. Tim Muehlhoff shares two practical ways to help you bless those who insult you.
Tim is a professor of communication at Biola University in La Mirada, CA, and is the co-director of the Winsome Conviction Project which seeks to reintroduce humility, civility, and compassion back into our public disagreements. He is the co-host of the Winsome Conviction Podcast and his latest book is, Winsome Conviction: Disagreeing without Dividing the Church (IVP)
