Pay Back

childish.jpgDon’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and He will bless you for it. -1 Peter 3:9

“Pay back” some call it “an eye for an eye.”  That was Old Testament law, but Jesus was known to turn things upside-down.  Really – what good can come from two people stumbling in blindness?  Pay back leaves no room for healing.  No chance of bringing that person back into the team, working together, moving ahead together.  God has called us to bless others – regardless of what they do to us – because it’s going to take all of us to reach His goals.
