Pastor's Perspective - Getting Even
Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. - Romans 12:19
So many of us are consumed daily with the toxic thoughts and motivation of 'getting even'. Paul here tells his readers to get on with life; that part of believing in God is believing that He sees everything and that He is a God of perfect justice. The cross is proof that trespasses don't go unpunished in His spiritual economy.
So, if someone has offended you, step aside and let the Lord step in. You'll sleep a whole lot better tonight if you will.
