1Thessalonians 5:15

1Thessalonians 5:15

See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
1 Thessalonians 5:15

Maybe you’ve heard it said, “Don’t get mad, get even!” I can’t say I hadn’t done that before or hadn’t had that mind set. When I think about the times when I got even with people, it either created this chain of people getting even or it was gratifying for one second then left me feeling unsettled.

There will always be this constant battle of our flesh, but that is one of the reasons we have the Word of God. It helps us in the fight against the flesh, a fight that isn’t beneficial for anyone. It gives us direction that leads people to Christ. Next time you are wronged, pursue what will bless someone else and see how the mercy and grace we show will lead many to Jesus.

Resting in Him,

Pastor Sean Boehm
