Let’s practice being honest with ourselves, which will eventually make us honest with one another. And not repaying evil for evil toward one another. When someone does us wrong, we want to repay them with evil, and we want to tell others that we are going to repay the wrong that was done to us.
God wants us to be honest, and doesn’t want us to take matters into our own hands. He wants us to wait on him, and let Him save you. When we do that, God accepts the consequences.
II Corinthians 13:7 (KJV) – now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.
Romans 12:17 (KJV) – recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
Proverbs 20:22 (KJV) – say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee.
