Thought of the Day !!

Do not say, "I'll pay you back for this wrong!" Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
                                                                               Proverbs 20:22 (NIV)

Revenge is not as sweet as people want to think.  When you get it, you don't feel better.  You can actually begin feeling worse.  This is because God may use your conscience to show you where you were wrong.  

Forgiveness is the real answer, not revenge.  When you forgive someone, God forgives you, and you leave all the built up hate and frustration with the other person.  And if they choose not to forgive, then it's them who will suffer, not you.  So don't allow the desire for the revenge you may or may not ever actually accomplish ruin your days.  Instead free yourself from the anger and hatred that control you.  You will be much happier then.  

In the love of Christ,
