There is no place for an eye for an eye or a tooth for a tooth. No place for giving to somebody else what they wrongly gave to you. Instead, just a wonderful, majestic place of forgiving and showing mercy and speaking grace to people. “Love your enemies. Bless those who curse you. Do good to those who hate you. Pray for those who mistreat you. Lend expecting nothing in return.” That’s Luke 6:27-38. What’s He talking about? Moving in the opposite spirit because you’re a whole different person now. You have God living on the inside of you.
