It is so easy to fall into the temptation of getting back at someone after they have hurt us. We all fight the desire to give them a taste of their own pain. But this is not what Jesus did and it is not what Paul calls us to do. In Romans 12:17 Paul says, Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. We are a reflection of Christ, and even though humanity’s sin is what ultimately caused Him to die on the cross for our sins, He still willingly suffered and died for all of us. Jesus is our example and He calls us to love everyone regardless of who they are and/or what they have done.
