I know, you’re thinking, “What in the world? That’s a really carnal statement, Karen!” Ha, you’re exactly right. But we’ve all heard it (and maybe even said it) haven’t we. It’s a really socially accepted thought: when someone does you wrong, get back at them. Yep, revenge is a very popular notion.
Of course we Christians know that phrase isn’t in the Bible, don’t we. So what do we do when someone treats us badly? Do we just roll over and let it happen? Do we “turn the other cheek”? Because we know that’s in the Bible -- ugh!
Let’s face it, the real question is – what does God want us to do?
I’ve found that what my flesh wants to do and what God wants me to do are often quite different. But I’ve also found that if I do things God’s way, the whole situation can turn out supernaturally good!
