Retaliation

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,

GOD is sitting on HIS THRONE
TEARS are streaming down HIS Face
FOR Lack of knowledge MY PEOPLE shall die
HOW come you Believers are so shy?
