When revenge is all right.

2 Corinthians 10:6 KJV
And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

The word of God says that revenge belongs to the Lord. We never have a right to get even with our enemies but are told to bless them and pray for them.

It's a challenge for us because we are so often injured, and for so many things.
• Sometimes just because we are in the wrong place when an event happens
• Sometimes because we are vulnerable
• Sometimes because we are Christians

This world is filled with people who make offenses. And so often they appear to have gotten away with it. It would be easier maybe for us if we could see them hurt for hurting us. Sometimes we just can't. So faith must step in. We must recognize that God is in control.

But there is one time when revenge is all right. It is all right to revenge disobedience with obedience. That, we should be ready always to do.
