Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right
How many times have we heard this? Yes this adage is very true. I can truly say that I have been on both sides of the fence on this one. I have called a spade a spade. I have felt angry and wanted to express it in more then a verbal way. I have been a victim of anger. So when I think about this sentence: Two wrongs do not make a right. I think well, what did Jesus do. He could have destroyed his enemies, he could have brought many a city down. He could have done so many things to the vengeful, ugly acting people. But he did not. Number one he led by example. Number two he knew he had to fulfill a promise ; that he would have to die for mankind. He would be the sacrificial lamb. He and God made that pact, because mankind just couldn't get it right. So the next time you feel the urge to go off. Or you are a victim of someone who has gone off, ask yourself what would "he" do? Would two wrongs make it right? Romans: 17-19 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written. It is mine to avenge; I will repay, says the Lord.
