Put Aside Revenge.


Just leave all your revenge plans for God, and He will take care of it for you.

As Christians, how do we handle being lied about, wronged, mistreated, or cheated out of things such as promotions, positions, or belongings that should have rightfully been ours?

Do we follow current social protocol, such as going online to expose the injustice and spread the word of what the offender did to us? Or do we submit the wrong to God and trust Him to make things right?

Scripture urges, “Do not say, ‘I’ll pay you back for this wrong!’ Wait for the Lord, and He will avenge you” (Proverbs 20:22).

Jesus is the ultimate example of trusting God, as described in 1 Peter 2:23“When they hurled their insults at Him, He did not retaliate; when He suffered, He made no threats. Instead, He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly.”

In suffering, we can look to Christ and follow His steps as our example in walking through it (1 Peter 2:21).
