when someone does you wrong

Get mad, get even, strike back, revenge, retribution, . . . . all words that can be very appealing when someone does us wrong.  It is ever so tempting to lash back with mean words, actions or attitudes when our feelings get hurt – all very natural feelings.  But thankfully, God has given us the power of choice.  We can chose our reaction.  We can chose a curse for a curse, an eye for an eye, tooth for tooth and stay in the revenge cycle or we can chose something altogether different and super-natural.  We can chose to:

  • give a blessing in exchange for a curse,
  • offer a prayer rather than continued blindness,
  • give encouragement instead of dental work
  • love in place of apathy or hate

Let’s make choices that affirm that we’re made in God’s image 🙂
