“She was so rude! I’m going to get her back!”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The Bible has a lot to say about the way we respond to people who hurt us. Things like: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.”
“He drives me crazy!”
Nancy: “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you.”
“I’ll give her a taste of her own medicine!”
Nancy: “Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.”
“She said she was sorry. Yeah, right.”
Nancy: “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”
Today it’s likely that someone’s going to hurt, annoy, or inconvenience you. The question is: Will you respond biblically with patience and forgiveness?
