Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the LORD’. Romans 12:19 (ESV)
Paul writes these words to the believers at Rome. He gives sage advice from which we can learn.
In today’s world, we hear of and see road rage. Someone accidentally makes an error in driving. Another driver becomes offended and reacts. That reaction can lead to a dangerous consequence.
We need to learn not to ‘add fuel to the fire’. Paul tells us to leave it to. . . God. This may sound difficult but we need to put this into practice as we strive to live for Jesus.
What can we do to model Paul's admonition before others?
