Defeat evil by doing good.
Don’t let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good.
Greetings and wonderful wishes in the priceless name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Dear brethren, to payback evil for evil is not a sign of strength but of weakness. The devil’s plan is always to make you restless and propel you to act in haste. And naturally, it will be a disaster when we act without a forethought. We often tend to forget the absolute truth. The truth that the living God is in us and with us 24×7; resist the devil and overcome every attempt to enrage us to do the evil. When we deal others in the Lord’s way, the devil’s plan to propagate hate and violence is decimated. The whole life of Jesus tells us everything. When we show kindness and bear the person who is against us; we actually diasarm him. By doing good, we may draw nothing immediately, but it definitely paves way for the defeat of evil.
Rather than following the law of retaliation which says, “an eye for an eye” or “a tooth for a tooth”, follow the path of love and righteousness of God. Right away we may not have strength to love the every person who harms us. But seek Jesus who is Love to fill us completely and live like Him. Furthermore, Jesus helps us to lead a life of love and righteousness and also live our lives according to the will of the Heavenly Father.
Therefore, don’t let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good in Jesus name. Amen.
