get even? 
During a convocation speech at a major Christian university in 2012, business magnate and TV celebrity Donald Trump told 10,000 students that the way to succeed in business is to “get even,” igniting an outcry from critics who said that Trump’s philosophy was inconsistent with Christian values.
“Getting even” may give you the edge in the business world, but it will definitely wreak havoc in your inner world. Instead of getting even, Paul told us to do the opposite: “Never pay back evil with more evil” (Romans 12:17), and “never take revenge” (v.19).
Revenge is a road a believer in Jesus must avoid. Why? Because it’s a right that God kept for Himself. That responsibility was never delegated to us (v.19). And it’s something that harms you more than it harms your enemy.
“Don’t get mad, get even,” may sound good, but it erodes the vitality and spirituality of those who practice it. People who seek revenge nourish their own bitterness, which can grow into a festering case of hostility, hatred, and malice that will soon consume and dehumanize the ones who possess it. The presence of love in you—loving God and loving others—is destroyed when you get even. The counter-offensive? “Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good” (v.21).
You may wonder if this kind of living is even possible. Fortunately, Jesus has revealed that it is: For while we were still His enemies, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8-11). “He is your example . . . . He did not retaliate . . . nor threaten revenge . . . . He left his case in the hands of God” (1 Peter 2:21-23).
We don’t need to get even. Instead, let’s let God take care of it. —K.T. Sim
Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God (v.19).
Read 2 Kings 6:20-23 to see how Elisha illustrated the principle lifted up later by Paul in Romans 12:2-21.
If revenge isn’t an option for believers in Jesus, what can you do? (1 Peter 2:21-233:8-121 Thessalonians 5:15). Why shouldn’t Christians get even?

remaining true 
A young man wavered between two worlds. Would he roll with the gangs in his neighborhood, or walk with Christ? Although his father struggled with addiction and his mother suffered from schizophrenia, his grandmother prayed for and encouraged him to follow Jesus. Christian hip-hop artist FLAME admits that there was a time in his life that he tried to fit into both worlds. But today he has a degree in biblical counseling and is attending seminary. And his top-selling albums contain street-savvy beats and inspiring Christian messages.
Like the prophet Jeremiah, FLAME had to decide how to interact with the world around him while remaining true to his faith. During a heart-to-heart talk with God, Jeremiah voiced his frustration over not fitting in with his peers. He said, “I am hated everywhere I go” (15:10), and “I never joined the people in their merry feasts. I sat alone because your hand was on me” (v.17).
Jeremiah had to herald God’s messages to the Israelites—confronting their sin and informing them of the consequences. Although the people plugged their ears and ostracized the prophet, God reminded him, “You must influence them; do not let them influence you!” (v.19).
When God calls us to Himself, He’s recruiting us to be lanterns in dark places (Matthew 5:14-16). Even so, living for God can be challenging when our flesh feels the tug of earthly enticement. We can find the right balance between God’s holiness and the world around us only when He’s our greatest influence.  —Jennifer Benson Schuldt
You must influence them; do not let them influence you! (v.19).
Read 1 Corinthians 15:33 for important insight into forming friendships. Look up 3 John 1:9-12 for examples of good and bad influences within the church.

Unseen scars

Sometimes I think about all the things I've been through in life.
And i thank God that I made it through it. But I don't live in the past. It toke along time before I realized that my past was holding me back.Not all my past was bad there was some good times.But I well never be able to relive those experiences. When I started getting my faith in God on the right track.My life starting changing little by little.Knowing that he had a plan for me .As time went by I started wondering why my grandmama always went to the alter and got to her knees and prayed and cried back then i didn't understand and didn't like to see her cry.She was the person I spent alot time with when I was little .That seeing her cry hurted me, like I said I didn't understand. But I remember our last conversation and I tried to do what she told me and that was to get a education and don't have a house full of kids.I think she didn't want me to be like her. I then realized she ,she wasn't happy the way her life turned out.
.She always said be good and good things will come to you. One day I heard a song and I couldn't wait for her to hear it.The song was Grandma's hands by Bill Withers. She liked it too .So when the Awards show came on I asked could I stay up and watch she said she would watch too because she like the song..My biggest scar is that my grandmama didn't see me before she died .I hope she see that I'm trying to be the person she wanted me to be.The love I have for her was the best part of my life.My heart is still full of love that I one day will see her again.
When you think life isn't worth living remember your grandmama prayed for your soul and spirit. That's what l believe that scar I have that I thought she didn't know how much l love her still today. Looking at my own grandkids hoping that one day they will know that i love them like she loved me.If your grandmama is still alive spend alot of time with her that love is so special .

how to be strong
Unfinished business. Too much to do.
People with problems who have to see you.
Calls, interruptions, nothing gets done.

Is this what it’s like serving God’s Son?
Where’s the time to get into His Word?
Where’s the time for His voice to be heard?
And where’s the time to savor life’s beauty?
It’s all taken up just doing the duty.
These are words from a poem by George R. Foster. And perhaps that’s how you feel sometimes as you serve God in your church, workplace, school, or home. Timothy was feeling timid and weak in the Lord’s service when the apostle Paul wrote to encourage him: “Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1).
“In Christ” is a phrase that Paul used often in his epistles. It refers to the amazing truth that when you trust Jesus as your Savior, God views you as totally identified with Him. And all of the riches of Christ are ours because we are “united with Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).
Hudson Taylor, founder of the China Inland Mission, understood what it means to be found in Christ. He wrote: “It makes no matter where He places me or how; that is rather for Him to consider than me. For the easiest positions He must give me grace, and in the most difficult, His grace is sufficient. So, if God places me in great perplexity, must He not give me much guidance; in positions of great difficulty, much grace; in circumstances of great pressure and trial, much strength? As to work, mine was never so plentiful, so responsible or so difficult, but the weight and the strain are all gone. His resources are mine, for He is mine.”
His grace is sufficient for you! (2 Corinthians 12:9). —Poh Fang Chia
Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus (v.1).
Use Psalm 46:1-11 as a prayer to help you to lean on God, who is your strength.
Use the words “in Christ” for a keyword search of an online Bible. Read all the promises that are yours in Christ. Which ones mean the most to you and why?
