1 Peter 2:23

I find myself referring to 1 Peter 2:23 almost every time I coach someone in conflict. I realized this morning that, to me, this verse describes the quintessential Christ-like response to conflict.

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth."
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
(1 Peter 2:21-25)
