When people done us wrong…
We want to kick and scream and holler and maybe even cuss. Perhaps even physical violence becomes part of to mix. (Ew)
Drama! Strife! Anguish! Why do we as humans allow this type of junk to litter our lives? If we aren’t directly in it, we like to watch it a lot of times. We are so weird!
And hey, we always want to be called the victim, but how can we when we do the same thing back to the person who done us wrong?
Yes, I know, they started it, but why must we continue it? This continuation reminds me of a kindergarten recess fight…
“She started it…”
“He started it…”
How about we finish it!?!
And I’m not talking about punching someone’s lights out.
I’m talking about walking away.
Don’t allow the person to continue their tirade of insanity.
Don’t allow it to consume you.
EASIER SAID THAN DONE, I KNOW.
BELIEVE ME, I know.
But in order for peace to become evident,
in order for good fruit to become priority…
We must not allow those who “done us wrong” to turn us into the same thing they are. In the Bible it says, we will end up consuming each other. How crazy is that!?!
“For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another.”
Galatians 5:14-15 NLT
Love each other. We must especially above all love those who done us wrong.
“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”
Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
