Revenge vs Mercy (Romans 12:17-21)

Matthew Hiatt, February 18, 2018
Part of the The Heart of Kindness series, preached at a Sunday PM service

Revenge is a hard emotion not to react to when given the opportunity. We take a look at how mercy should always be shown and God should be left to supply judgment.

Romans 12:17-21

17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. (KJV)
