See that none of you repays another with evil for evil, but always aim to show kindness and seek to do good to one another and to everybody.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:15

It is terrible what people will do to each other when they have been wronged. Thank goodness, with a brand new nature and the Spirit of God dwelling within us we do not have to act like the world, but we have to use our spiritual weapons.

Think about this, “Do not react, but respond.” When you act in the heat of the moment, you want to fly off at a tangent with folks that have done evil to you.

Stop, think, and cool off a little; you must handle the situation properly. When you are ready, respond. You will behave in an entirely different manner than if you react in the heat of the moment.

Don’t be like the others, behaving badly and exposing a bad attitude. Lift your level and behave like a child of God. That does not mean that you are weak and running away, but it proves your strengths and that you refuse to be a part of their strife and confusion.

You will have the victory and peace to go with it. Do good, no matter how much your flesh wants to let loose.

Love never fails, it always get the best results. Respond in love and watch evil flee from you.
