Our first reaction may be to seek revenge, inflicting the same pain or discomfort on others that we have felt ourselves. Even though we may think this will make us feel better, the results are short-term. Instead of repaying evil with evil, we need to consider other actions. To use our anger in positive ways to make lasting change, we need to respond out of God's love. Instead of trying to hurt others, we need to bless each other and build each other up. Instead of responding with the intent of revenge and hurt, we can pray that we repay evil with blessings that allow God's love to spread and make the changes we seek!
Don't allow your anger to turn to hatred and evil plans. Instead, pray and repay evil with blessings!
Please comfort all those that are hurting. Thank You for Your presence and love. Help me to be an instrument of Your love and healing so that evil is repaid with Your blessings, love, and peace. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
