DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Repay No One Evil For Evil
As believers live in the same community with unbelievers, it is not impossible to see some of them (unbelievers) who are heady, stubborn, always looking for trouble. At times, they will do some things intentionally to make the believer to get angry and start fighting with them. At such moments, believers should be sensitive to know that the devil is at work and should do everything possible not to bring themselves low by exchanging unpleasant word with the unbelievers. Do not pay them back in their own coin. If they do any evil against you, do not retaliate, leave vengeance to God to avenge you. If they are cursing you, choose to bless them in return. With these God will be fighting for you and you are at the same time ministering Christ to them.
Point of Emphasis: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Prayer Point: Help me Lord not to avenge myself in any case but to live everything for You.
