Stopping the Cycle of Evil

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21 NIV

Getting even with someone who offended us then causes them to get even with us. The circle continues. What about breaking the cycle?

Kevin Wilfley has provided a few biblical steps we can take are:

1) Pray. More issues are resolved in prayer than this world ever dreams.

2) Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44). You don’t have to associate with your enemies or enjoy being around them, but try to show them courtesy and respect, seeking to do them good.

3) Do not speak to your enemy in anger, sarcasm, or in jest. A soft answer turns away wrath (Proverbs 15:1).

4) Seek an agreement or compromise with your enemy as soon as possible (Matthew 5:25).
