So what is the answer or approach one should take in any of these situations?
The first obvious reaction might be to lash out; to retaliate in some way; or, to enlist the help of some of your closest friends to give back what you were given.
What To Do Or Not Do
Now, let’s look for a moment at youth bullying.
A fair approach in response to different types of bullying would be to report the circumstances and behaviors to a school authority like a principal or to a teacher. As well, your parents should be advised.
But, is this all you should do?
There is an additional action that elevates the issue you are facing to an even higher level of authority, and one who has absolute control to take action.
And, that authority is God.
Jesus has the ultimate power to rectify any situation; more power than any one of us. Trust Him, give your concerns to Him.
