Discussion: Being Wronged


Have you suffered because of the actions of someone else?

What was your response?

Is there a better way to handle this?

“ Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.””-Romans 12:17-21 NIV

Do you allow God to repay for wrongs done against you, or do you try to avenge yourself quickly?

“Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse. Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.”-Proverbs 9:7-8 NIV

Are you a mocker?

Are you an abuser?

Are you wise?
