Passage: 1 Peter 2:18-25 (RSV)

1 Peter 2

18Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing.
19For one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering unjustly.
20For what credit is it, if when you do wrong and are beaten for it you take it patiently? But if when you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently, you have God's approval.
21For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
22He committed no sin; no guile was found on his lips.
23When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he trusted to him who judges justly.
24He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
25For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.
