Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.Us Christians are normally pretty good at being able to point out and complain about evils in the world. Sometimes maybe a bit too good at it. It seems every time i pick up a newspaper these days there is a Christian talking about some sin or another. Don't misunderstand me, we do need to speak truth clearly at the appropriate times. I do think there should be more to our response to sin and evil that that though. I wonder what would happen if we took what Paul said seriously in Romans 12:21 seriously and committed ourselves to not just ranting about it but doing something about the evil that catches our attention. I wonder what it would look like?
Romans 12:21 (NIV)
I wonder what it would look like to overcome poverty with good?
I wonder what it would look like to overcome abuse and bullying with good?
I wonder what it would look like to overcome corruption and dishonesty with good?
I wonder what it would look like to overcome evil with good?
I wonder if it could change the world? I think it might.
