Good Words for Today: April 23

post date: April 23, 2019
“Dear friends, never avenge yourselves. Leave that to God" (Romans 12:19 LB).
"Seeking revenge turns us into perpetual victims. Revenge makes you go through the hurt over and over again. You never really get over it. Ultimately, it drags you down to the sewer where your enemies dwell.
While you are staying up late at night stewing in your juices, they are out on a yacht on Lake Michigan, having a party. When you give in to the temptation to get even, your enemies have won twice: When they hurt you the first time and now when you can’t get it out of your mind.
Let God take care of making things right. Do that and you will sleep better tonight."
