RECOMPENSE TO NO MAN EVIL FOR EVIL


“Recompense to no man evil for evil.”
(Romans 12:17)

The best way to respond to those who would do us evil is to do the opposite to them. The best way to combat a lie is with the truth. The best way to combat hate is with love. The best way to combat slander is with silence. Whenever we respond to evil with evil, we dishonor our Lord, discredit ourselves, and bring ourselves down to the level of the wicked. Let us seek to follow the example of our Savior in these areas of dealing with evil enemies.
