Today's Verse: Proverbs 20:22

Sunday, July 16, 2017

Do not say, "I'll pay you back for this wrong!" Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
— Proverbs 20:22

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Vengeance is an awful and painful way to respond to those whom we feel have wronged us. The LORD is our assurance of just rewards. Leave it to him. Escalating vindictiveness only leads to broken people and to broken lives. Worse yet, it leads to broken character.

My Prayer...

Through your Spirit, Abba Father, please empower me to be patient for you to right injustices committed against me. Please help me to be more concerned about the salvation of those who may have wronged me than I am about getting even. Please give me more of a heart like your Son, Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
