You will not benefit over time if you mistreat other people. Even if the same people mistreated you. Sometimes it is very difficult to understand that treating people who harmed you with respect is much more challenging than standing up to them and trying to match their abuse.

Christian Bible Lesson 107: Faith And Works In Your Entire Life
The way we live demonstrates what we believe and illustrates if the faith we say we have is real. Faith without works is not real because true faith affects life. It is important that we demonstrate the fruit of good works.
True faith will lead to a transformed life, faith is defined by our actions. What we do reflects what we believe and whether our faith is true. True faith changes life, supported by works.
Christian Bible Lesson 106: Testing of Faith versus Temptation
The Bible makes a major distinction between “Testing of Faith” and “Temptation”. There are examples in the Bible of “Testing of Faith”. These are examples of people facing challenges in life that are difficult to face such as financial challenges, loss of a child, challenges with work, etc. Clearly, God does not give us challenges that are greater than we can handle. It is important that we are prepared to face life challenges and work through them with the faith that we will overcome them.
Christian Bible Lesson 105: Do Not Brag
It is important that you not only do good deeds but also, that you act for the right reasons. Contributing to people in need to make yourself look good is not righteous. Making sure you benefit from helping other people by bragging in front of your friends is not the way to help people.
Christian Bible Lesson 104: Obey Caesar
Although the United States Government was created based on strong Christian beliefs, the freedom to support all citizens regardless of religious beliefs is fundamental within the constitution. Some of the laws are contrary to the teachings of Jesus. That was also true during the time Jesus lived when the Romans had laws that were not consistent with Christian teachings.
Christian Bible Lesson 103: Helping Others
Helping other people is not limited to contributing to charities, voting for assistance programs, or donating your time to support a specific group that assists people in need. You can also help family members, friends, and co-workers.
Christian Bible Lesson 102: Biblical Leadership
Leadership is not limited to companies, politics, or religious organizations. Leadership affects families, friends, and general groups. Regardless of how strong a leader is or how educated, or experienced, it is critical for the leader to serve people as well as guide them.
Christian Bible Lesson 101: Forgive others and you will be forgiven
It is important to forgive those who wronged you. We all make mistakes and do things that affect other people. Sometimes people are not aware of the pain they cause others until it is too late to change their behavior. Other times they deliberately hurt people.
Christian Bible Lesson 100: Fighting Isolation
It is important to establish friendships with other people. As you develop friendships make an effort to support and comfort your friends. As stated in the Bible Verse above, some people have provided comfort for an angel without knowing it.
Christian Bible Lesson 99: Power of your tongue
The tongue has a lot of power. What you say is important, but also how you say it is important. As the Bible Verses above state, words have tremendous power. You can help people and promote good, and you can also promote evil through the words you speak and how you speak them.
