How Do You Overcome Evil With Good?

“Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honourable in the sight of all” (Rom 12:17). If we repay evil with evil, we are no better than they are. If it is humanly possible, we must “live peaceably with all” (Rom 12:18a). To not repay evil for evil means we “never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord” (Rom 12:19). Payback is for God, not for us. God’s judgment throne is a one-seater! Another way to overcome evil with God is when “your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head” (Rom 12:20).
