Faith Walk: Choosing our ResponseAuthor: Dr. George Flattery
One of the hardest things that we are called to do in life is to respond to evil with good.
Our natural response is to fight back, to hurt the person as much as they have hurt us. What makes it even more difficult is that 9 times out of 10 the person who hurt us does not think they have done anything at wrong at all! We chose our response. We choose to be better than those who have hurt us. We choose to respond in a positive way by loving them, praying for their good and praying God’s will in their lives. We do not let other people’s bondages become our bondages. There is no revenge as fulfilling as complete forgiveness.
