Don't pay evil for evil

Don’t Pay Evil For Evil

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Don’t pay evil for evil. ‘Look! It’s Taye’. Dele pointed out to Femi as they walked home from school. ‘He’s alone. Now you can do whatever you want to him” Dele urged, his eyes gleaming with vengeance.

‘Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone’ (NIV)

Romans 12:7

Taye had stumbled into Femi on purpose earlier today at school during lunch break. Femi’s whole lunch had spilled over his white shirt. This earned him a huge reprimand from the teacher. And his mom was still going to do so too at home.

Dele was right, this was the perfect opportunity to pay Taye back. He remembered what he had learned from the devotional this morning. He remembered the verse in the Bible.

‘Be kind and compassionate to one another. Forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you’.

Ephesians 4:32

‘No, I won’t do anything to him’ he shrugged his shoulders.

‘Are you serious?’ asked a dumbfounded Dele. ‘He bullies you all the time’.

‘My mom read today in the devotional that Jesus said I don’t have to be mean to him also’. He gave Taye a wide smile and waved as they passed him.

‘Did you just smile and wave at him?’ Dele asked, his eyes huge as lemons.

‘Yeah, I did’, said a happy Femi. He felt good as he walked on. ‘I am going to pray for him instead’.

People will always hurt us no matter how good we are to them or others. Being obedient to Jesus is not to hurt people back when they hurt us.

I learn to forgive. I will not pay evil with evil.

Dear Jesus, I want to obey you by not hurting back anybody that has hurt me. In your mighty name, I pray. Amen.
