Lent 2010, Day 6

If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “ If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Romans 12:18-20

We all need to remember this admonition in the midst of our angry society, especially when it's our feelings/beliefs that are being stepped on. Nonetheless, it's the more mature person who seeks to follow the wisdom in Proverbs 25:21-22. During this Lent, let us strive to make it an habitual part of our lives.
