When someone wrongs us, our first instinct is to pay them back. But in 1 Peter 3:9 Peter calls us to react differently, Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. Just as Jesus commanded us to turn the other cheek, and He lived and died by this example, we are not to repay evil with evil. It is God’s job to judge and repay evil against us.
