00592 - Anti-Social Behaviour

As Christians, addressing anti-social behaviour in our communities calls for a balance of wisdom, compassion, and firmness. Our approach should be guided by the principles of love and justice. We are called to be lights in our communities, influencing positively through our actions and attitudes. 

Romans 12:21 (NIV) is particularly pertinent: "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." It's about setting a positive example and influencing change through constructive, rather than confrontational, means. Always pray into the issues first.

Our response to anti-social behaviour should include practical steps like supporting community initiatives, engaging with local authorities, and providing help where needed. It's about proactively creating an environment where positive values are encouraged and upheld. Through prayer, action, and collaboration, Christians can play a significant role in addressing and transforming anti-social behaviour in their communities, reflecting Christ's love and bringing hope and healing to troubled situations.


Solve issues in your community with prayer, grace and love.


Lord, remind me to pray whenever an issue exists in my area. Amen.

Action Point
