When Someone Wrongs Us

Nov 15, 2021

The normal response is to burn with vengeance inside.  The natural reaction is to bring on vengeance outside.  When someone wrongs us, we often desire to make things right by making them pay for their wrongdoing.  But Jesus modeled a different way of handling the hurts of others.  The way of love.  The way of forgiveness.  The way of grace.  This doesn’t mean we skip appropriate justice for serious wrongs; it means we show appropriate pardon for petty ones.  And in all wrongs, big and small, we pray the wrongdoers will find their way to Jesus so He can change their hearts and lives for good.  Just as He changes ours.
