Bible Verse of the Week || Revenge


Proverbs 24:29

Do not say, “I will do to him as he has done to me; I will pay the man back for what he has done.”

————————

Revenge is such a silly thing to do. Remember, do not let anger take over. ‘Cause once revenge starts, it won’t stop unless someone ‘Forgive and Forgets’

There was this time, where I had a friend, who was very mean to me, and I decided to myself “two can play this game” and do the same thing to her. Finally she asked “Why are you being so mean to me?”  I replied “I’m just showing you how badly you treat me” and her reply?

“If I treat you badly, then why do the same?”

I didn’t answer that, but in my thoughts I said “Because I want you to feel how I feel.”

As I grew older, I found out, that if I continued acting mean, it would be a cycle of conflict and trouble.

And I would be hurting, not only her, but myself…

Romans 12:19

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

It is this simple, instead of doing it by yourself… Leave it all to God…

There is no fight left, on the inside. But maybe, that’s where I should be… – JJ Heller
