As many of you know, I enjoy using some of my dad’s articles from time to time to just remember his wisdom and humor. I hope you all enjoy this one.
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” Romans 12:19 (KJV)
There have been times when I have not obeyed this verse. I have gotten mad, upset, and even agitated at folks. They just didn’t seem to understand what I knew was right! They did me wrong! I even had the thought of getting even! I know those thoughts never enter YOUR mind? Have they??
Seriously, we need to heed this verse. Not trying to get even will decrease ill will and hurt feelings, This will show the grace of God you have and expose your meekness. All the time you can be praying, “Get-um God.”
I have been wronged by a Deacon and turned the matter over to God and that Deacon was dead within six months. I also had problems on my job and that administrator lost her job and I was given another contract!
This verse says vengeance belongs to God. We need to get out of the way and watch what God does. Will you try to practice that?
God does take care of His own.
