No retaliation

There is something in our nature about wanting to get even. That is a part of our culture.

It has no place in God’s new plan. He isn’t seeking revenge. He is not calling down fire. He is loving. He is sympathetic. He is in a good mood.

There is no exception to this. He wants us to reflect His love. He doesn’t retaliate. Neither should we. Let’s live in the new plan. It is good news.

Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. 1 Peter 3:8-12
