Unfortunately, we live in a world of "pay backs" for
personal insult or injury. A good example of this is
road rage. But, as Christians, if we are committed to
the mind set of God, we will have made preparations
beforehand about how we will respond to evil aimed
at us or those we love. Then when we encounter
personal attacks of evil, we can payback evil with
good and not be overtaken by the evil. To be
overcome by evil is to imitate the evil. But, we
choose to imitate God and overcome evil with good.
Then even the ungodly will have to take notice and
know that we behaved as Godly people.

Heavenly Father, we ask your forgiveness for
those times when we have failed to imitate You
and we have repaid evil for evil. We ask that
you will stir us to put on Your armor before we
encounter evil, so that we will be ready to
respond with good. We ask this in Jesus' name.

Read Romans 12:17

"Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful
to do what is right in the eyes of everybody."

"Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide
things honest in the sight of all men." (KJV)
