Retaliate Not!

By Mary Lindow

 

 

Retaliation is the fruit of entitlement and bitterness.

 

A deeply rooted pride of self formed rights.  It’s a seething, always simmering right below the surface behavior that silently finds ways to justify and punish when the emotionally and spiritually immature individual loses a form of control or loss of attention on demand.

 

Jesus didn’t retaliate….

 

…. He was shamed, talked about, ridiculed, blamed, abandoned…

 

when He needed love and kindness the most.

 

Yet…

 

… He endured the cross, so that in hope, those whom He would save, would never retaliate.

 

“Not returning evil for evil or retaliation for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might, in humility inherit a blessing,”   1 Peter 3:9.

 

 

 

In His Shadow,
