we have excuses for everything, don’t we? especially when we are wronged or hurt by others. our initial, human response is to return to them “what they’ve got coming!”
in a word … don’t!
there is no excuse that makes us qualified to judge the situation. we have the perfect example of a Man, in His own right, who could have fought back, but didn’t!
He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly.
1 Peter 2:23
