Hope for today: live at peace

Hope

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:17-21

  1. I had to really, really work on these. It goes against everything “the world” tells us. But God knows His business, and if we can get better with loving our enemy, we are blessed. I have seen it. And is has so many folds because we are happier too. God rewards us for doing what His Word tells us, and He will draw that enemy into Him, and save that soul. Beautiful :):)

    1. Blessings to you…I so understand. God always brings me back to the fact that I was His enemy but He drew me…”For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life (Romans 5:10). Every true believer gives is evidence of what God can do an enemy. 🙂 Praise His Name! Blessings today! 🙂
