“You have heard it said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’  Matthew 5:38-48  I had a friend who believed that when wronged, it was only right to return the favor with a more hurtful wrong because vengeance was not only right it was necessary. However, it seemed to me that an eye for an eye culture keeps us in a constant state of victimization, preoccupied with how we intend to payback the wrong that has been done. For me that was no way to live. From experience I realize how difficult it can be to let go of a grudge and move forward when one is preoccupied with looking back for the purpose of revenge.  Yet to walk in Christ is to walk in victory and know that God’s wrath is far greater than anything we could do on our own. We are victors because in faith through Christ, the battle is already won.
