Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21

We live in a world where many persons don't mind treating people badly. Many persons can hurt you even intentionally, and still not be sorry about it. This pushes many people to the wall, and makes them feel like they should just give that unkind fellow a piece of his medicine.

Well, giving him a piece of his medicine means giving him a bit of the same unkindness he shows others, hurting him just like he hurts others, and giving him the same unkind treatment he gives others.

Now the question is, can you give what you don't have? You see, it's very easy to be overcome by evil, and you wouldn't know when you move from being treated wickedly, to now having wickedness in you to give to others. 

Don't be overcome by evil. Don't allow yourself become evil because of someone's evil. That's not God's plan for you. Rather, overcome evil with good. Be a blessing. Be full of love regardless.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you for your love which has been poured out in my heart, by your Holy Spirit. Please help me to respond to every situation with love and faith in Jesus name. Amen.
