    1. You’re welcome and thank you too JJ. This is an imperfect world that crucified Christ. In this world, JESUS continually teaches us (through the reading of the scripture) to love one another. Like all other unfairness or “injustices” in life, whether it is office politics, bullying, bigotry and racism (to name some), it seems quite hard to turn the other cheek especially if it is done regularly (beyond logic). We should always remember of GOD the FATHER’s grace that redeemed us through His Son JESUS CHRIST our Lord. Apostle Paul had that kind of predicament or as he said “thorn in the flesh” to which JESUS said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” And Paul’s response, which can be found in 2 Corinthians 12:10, is, “For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” “God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong” (1 Corinthians 1:27). This world will pass, just ignore them and focus on the prize/grace.
