Harder Than a Fresh Marshmallow

Webster defines marshmallow as a “soft white candy with a spongy texture.” A fresh marshmallow would be super soft!

What does this have to do with “Connie Christian” and “Danny Disciple?” Consider the following statements from God:

“You have heard that it was said ‘an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other cheek also” (Matthew 6:38).

“Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:17, 21).

“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself. But if you bite and devour one another, take care lest you be consumed by one another” (Galatians 5:14-15).

When someone offends you and your first impulse is to give them a piece of your mind, remember that Christians should be harder than fresh marshmallows. When a fellow Christian thinks only of self and steps on you with the foot of inconsideration, instead of blasting back, be sweet, soft and tender-hearted like a fresh marshmallow.

Pray for God to mold you like His Son. Strive to be forgiving and at peace with others. May someone richly bless you by saying to you, “My, I believe you’re about as hard as a fresh marshmallow!”
