Romans 12:21 AV
Be not overcome of evil,
but overcome evil with good.
Someone said that the number one goal in dealing with difficult people or circumstances is this: Don’t become what you hate.
He wasn’t talking about hating the person, but he meant that we don’t want to become evil, wicked, petty, and sinful in our actions and motivations.
We don’t overcome the Devil by underhanded and dishonorable means.
We overcome evil by doing what is right and filling our hearts and lives with goodness.
There is no greater example of overcoming evil with good than Jesus.
▪︎ Ask the Lord to bless you with character as you resist those who are critical, cynical, and vengeful toward you.
▪︎ Ask the Lord to help you to respond in a way that reflects the character and Lordship of Christ.
