Fight evil with good. (Romans 12:21)

We as Christians need to get back on track. We need to fight evil with good, not evil with evil.
How can we go around saying we follow Christ, when we do wrong to those who've wronged us?
Is that what Jesus said?

 

Matthew 5:38-40

New International Version (NIV)

    38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.

If we strike back if someone strikes us, it makes us wrong also, and we will have to meet the consequences for that. But if we do as Jesus said, and as Paul wrote, to overcome evil with good and kindness, people will take note of that. They will wonder why we don't get back at people, why we are so kind, and why we stand out and act differently. They'll wonder why we do good when everyone else does bad. And that curiosity could even lead to that person becoming saved.  

So yeah, take that extra step to make sure that you are fighting evil with good. You never know who it can effect. :)

Have a great day and God bless!
