¹⁷Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men (Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody)
¹⁸If [it is] possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men (with everyone).
This is how Jesus lived!
▪︎ He sought to make a difference in the lives of others.
▪︎ His goal wasn’t getting even,
▪︎ His goal wasn’t getting what was rightfully His,
▪︎ His goal wasn’t even winning the arguments.
▪︎ His focus was to interact with people redemptively
▪︎ His focus was to leave them more blessed than where he found them.
▪︎ Ask God to forgive you for the grudges you’ve harbored.
▪︎ Ask God to forgive you for the evil things you’ve thought about others.
▪︎ Ask God to help you to see and to value them as Jesus does.
