"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." - Romans 12 V21
"See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all." - 1 Thessalonians 5 V15
We by human nature return evil to those who do evil to us. What shall it profit us when we return evil for evil? It is Satan who is happy here. Jesus has a different opinion about this subject. He said, "...Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you" (Matthew 5 V44). By doing so we invite the unbelievers to take a glance at the Christian Love we preach. Do good to others and make Jesus happy.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
