21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
As a child I would get mad when someone would do something to my father only for him to turn around and help them a week later. He would always say just because that Jesus went through allot worse and still forgave the ones beating him. Now I know what he meant. When you return evil for evil, it creates a cycle that cannot stop. However, if you return good to the ones who do you wrong, then it stops the cycle. It is what Christ wanted us to do. He wanted us to be able to pray for our enemies and if we are returning evil hiw can we do that?
