Daily Devotional- Seeking Revenge?

Teaching about Revenge: Matthew 5:38-42

“Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. Instead, “If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals of shame on their heads.” Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.” – Romans 12:19-21

Seeking revenge is something that drains us and is unhealthy when it comes to “getting even.” The only person we should let settle our scores is God. When people do us wrong our focus shouldn’t be to repay with them with evil but with love.
