I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

October 28

DO NOT EXPECT to be treated fairly in this life. People will say and do hurtful things to you, things that you don’t deserve. When someone mistreats you, try to view it as an opportunity to grow in grace. See how quickly you can forgive the one who has wounded you. Don’t be concerned about setting the record straight. Instead of obsessing about other people’s opinions of you, keep your focus on Me. Ultimately, it is My view of you that counts.
As you concentrate on relating to Me, remember that I have clothes you in My righteousness and holiness. I see you attired in these radiant garments, which I bought for you with My blood. This also is not fair; it is pure gift. When others treat you unfairly, remember that My ways with you are much better than fair. My ways are Peace and Love, which I have poured out into your heart by My Spirit.

   Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have
   against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. ― Colossians 3:13

   I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he
   has clothes me with garments of salvation and arrrayed me in a
   robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
   and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. ー Isaiah 61:10

   In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of
   sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished
   on us with all wisdom and understanding. ー Ephesians 1:7-8

   And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into
   our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. ー Romans 5:5
