My friends, do not try to punish others when they wrong you, but wait for God to punish them with his anger. It is written: ‘I will punish those who do wrong; I will repay them,’ says the Lord. But you should do this: If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink. Doing this will be like pouring burning coals on his head. Do not let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good.
— Romans 12:19-21 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for wishing bad things to happen to my enemies. Help me to forgive others — just as You have forgiven me. Help me to learn to be kind to all those around me — even those who continually choose to treat me badly. I leave that in Your hands, Lord, and trust You to do what’s needed and best for them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
