Devotions for Life

Never Take Revenge

Today’s Verse: “Never take your own revenge” Romans 12:19.
How are we able to avoid taking revenge? According to human thinking David had
reasons to take revenge against Saul, but he did not. What kept him from taking
revenge are the same reasons we can use to avoid taking revenge.


Our Price

Ponder: “From that time Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and
suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised
up on the third day” (Matthew 16:21).
“But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities”
(Isaiah 53:5a). Jesus paid the price for our redemption. What a price! It began with His
leaving Heaven, giving up the rights and privileges of being part of the God Head
(Philippians 2:6-7) and becoming like us.


Children Our Rich Heritage

Today’s Bible Verse: “‘Permit the children to come to me; do not hinder them;
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does
not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter at all.’ And then Jesus took
them in his arms and began blessing them” (Mark 10:14-16).
