Payback

“Pain is unmasked, unmistakable evil; every man knows that something is wrong when he is being hurt.” C.S. Lewis

By: Gabriela Yareliz

People can be hurtful, manipulative, and completely self-absorbed. And when it comes to relationships, all of these things kind of perturb the spirit when one comes face to face with them. Many times, we want to give people what we think they deserve. However, we can gather greater comfort in this:

“Do your best to live at peace with everyone. Dear friends, don’t try to get even. Let God take revenge. In the scriptures, The Lord says, ‘I am the one to take revenge and pay them back.'” Romans 12:18-19

Justice rests in hands greater than ours; in a God who does not miss a thing.
