As far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
The above sentence is from my Bible reading this morning.
Shortly after I rolled out of bed, I started rushing around doing important things, and then I remembered...about the Bible reading. On the table next to my bed is a book that many people would die for. (literally and figuratively--see previous post)
I only had a minute, so I flipped open the Bible and read where the pages landed. (I do not recommend this method for Bible reading) But for some reason, the words hit the spot.
And then the verses went on to say...
—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.—
PRETTY GOOD ADVICE FOR THE DAY!
