Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Do not pay anyone back evil for
evil. Focus on those things that everyone considers noble. If it is possible,
as far as it depends on you, maintain peace with everyone. Do not take revenge,
dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath. For it is written, “Vengeance is
mine; I will repay,” says the Lord. But: If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give
him a drink.
For by doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:17-21 EHV)
Hymn ELH 43:7 Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
Spare Thy people Lord, we pray,
By a thousand snares surrounded;
Keep us without sin today,
Never let us be confounded.
Lo, I put my trust in Thee;
Never, Lord, abandon me.
Heavenly Father, Your Son forgave my sins. Teach me to forgive my enemies and to not harbor hatred in my heart toward others. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
