Leviticus 19 18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any

shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the LORD.
Psalm 103 8 The LORD is merciful and gracious,

Mark 11 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if
ye have ought (anything) against any: that your
Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you
your trespasses. 26 But if ye do not forgive, neither
will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your
Many people are continuing to suffer
consequences for their own sins, because

Romans 12 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends
on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take
revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's
wrath, for it is written: "It is Mine to avenge; I will

Than to meet a fool living in his foolishness.
as Robert L. Alden suggests, “Consider meeting a
fool with a knife, or gun, or even behind the wheel
of a car; a mother bear could be less dangerous”

Timeless Advice, p. 134).

depart from his house.
To render evil for good is devilish. He that does so,
brings a curse upon his family.
