Blessings instead of Cursing {Romans 12:14}

Verse: Bless those who persecute you.  Don't curse them; pray that God will bless them.  Romans 12:14

Main Idea: When someone you know is mean to you, for any reason, it is not a normal reaction to pray for blessings over their life.  Even adults struggle with being kind to those who are unkind to us.  God asks us to live this way because we are called to live differently than those who don't believe in Christ.  By living in such a dramatically kind and loving way, we are showing the world how God loves them!

2} When someone is rude or mean to you, how do you normally react?  What would it look like if you reacted the way this verse is suggesting? 
3} How can praying for an enemy change the way you feel about them? 
4} If a friend hurts your feelings by saying or doing something that is hurtful or thoughtless, what would the correct response look or sound like? 
5} If you have a friend or family member who is mean to you all the time, should you keep being their friend? Why or why not?  What do you think this verse is encouraging?
6} How would living this way change your friendships and other relationships?
