[WordPOWER!] Romans 12: Repay No One Evil for Evil — Don't Curse — Give Place to God's Wrath

We need to fully trust that God will deal with people totally fairly at the appropriate time.
It’s serious sin for us to step into His vengeance shoes that only fit Him, being all knowing and totally just!
It’s not our job to withhold forgiveness or to wish evil on anyone!

Romans 12:

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless, and don’t curse.

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice. Weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Don’t set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Don’t be wise in your own conceits.

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Respect what is honorable in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as it is up to you, be at peace with all men.

19 Don’t seek revenge yourselves, beloved, but give place to God’s wrath. For it is written, “Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord.”

20 Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in doing so, you will heap coals of fire on his head.”

21 Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
