 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.  On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

    I’ve been to Rwanda and experienced the results of genocide in the memorials around the country. What struck me the most is witnessing the forgiveness of people toward those who killed their family members. It challenged and inspired me. A friend of mine made a short film that won an academy award called As We Forgive. You might enjoy watching the trailor at http://www.asweforgive.org. It engages conversations of reconciliation among those who watch it. Love you sweet Laura.

    When at murder sites with our ministry organization called First Responders [I’ve posted about it a few times] that is one of the main scriptures that is used to remind that retaliation is NOT and OK choice of family and friends. Submitting to the Lord for HIS manner of breaking through the sorrow, sadness, evil, and all other forms of anger and revenge… that is truly a key necessity in our lives. Thanks.
