September 28 - Reflection

When someone does you wrong, a frequent reaction is to try to get even. “He will pay for this one”, we might say. The disciples of Jesus want to bring fire from the sky to get even with those who did not want to receive Jesus. But revenge is not Jesus´ way. Peace is more powerful than the pleasure of immediate retaliation.

How do you react when someone hurts you? Do you feel the temptation to get even? Do you feel that not responding to the hurt would show weakness on your part?
