Give better than you get.

Romans 12 calls you to bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. It is a dangerous decision to take matters into your own hands by responding to evil with evil—in the moment, the fight seems so right. But when you respond with anything but love, the war will escalate, and the evil will continue. We’re called to break the cycle of retaliation, break the cycle of reaction, break the cycle of anger and irritation. While the normal response to injustice is to fight back and even the score, instead use love to confront the people you meet—impatient people, obnoxious people, people who make your life hard right now. Jesus wants you to give better than you get.
