There’s no middle ground.
Either you win, or you lose.
You either conquer, or are conquered.
We can’t control the evil we face, but we can all control our response.
Each of us have the choice as to whether we will allow evil to conquer us, or whether we will conquer evil:
‘Never pay back evil with more evil… Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good’ – Romans 12:17,21 (NLT)
The most powerful way to overcome evil is not to ignore it, side step it or run from it. And we never overcome evil by seeking revenge or payback.
Instead, the most powerful way to overcome evil is by ‘doing good’:
“If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink.”’ (20:20)
When you ‘do good’ to those who have mistreated you, you are released from the cycle of payback. You are free to move on with your life.
If you want to win, conquer and live with freedom, then choose to overcome evil by doing good today!
