Do not say, "I'll pay you back for this wrong!" Wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you. Prov. 20:22
This was the verse in my daily reading yesterday. I didn't think much of it.......until I remembered I had been toying w/ the idea of a minor revenge tactic. If you knew what it was you would laugh your head off because it was so petty in comparison of what it was in revenge for.
I kept thinking I somehow DESERVED to do it. Kept thinking it really wouldn't hurt anyone except for possibly cause a minor inconvenience. I was plotting & scheming, I admit.
I was justifying all the reason WHY this would be an ok thing to do. Some would even consider it humorous!
Then today I remembered THIS verse from yesterday morning.
NO denying...revenge is never OUR right nor duty.
