The History of Revenge

revenge-492560_1280Revenge is never sweet. It is an inherently unhealthy habit forbidden by God in 1 Thess. 5:15 and other passages. We all know that. But let’s elaborate on the the history of revenge.

Revenge has never

…produced authentic justice

…healed anyone

…promoted righteousness

…converted a sinner

…glorified God

…built a church

…made a marriage better

…raised a child

…earned an honest living

…or sent anyone to heaven

Ralph Waldo Emerson was right: “For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
