Naturally, when we are wronged, we want to seek revenge. This comes out in me most while driving. Who can identify with that? How do you feel when someone cuts you off? How do you feel when you are stuck behind someone doing 60 in an 80 zone and you’re running late? Does your blood boil? Well it shouldn’t! Now there are far worse things that people can do to us than cutting us off in traffic. We can be cheated. We can be slandered. We can be taken advantage of. Many in history have suffered such terrible things we today cannot even imagine. Many in other countries are still suffering such unimaginable injustices. They’ve suffered such things as torture and rape and witness loved ones being brutally killed. We’ve seen that in World War 2, in Rwanda, and even now Christians as close to us as Indonesia suffer terrible things. Yet we are called to repay evil with good. We are to remember that vengeance is the Lord’s job – it is not our job.
