Matthew 12:34King James Version (KJV)
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
when a man has so much wickedness all around him there is no way he wouldn’t get tired of being nice.
many Christians that try the Mr.nice guy approach to life have been seriously frustrated by
neighbors and friend that take kindness to mean stupidity. they borrow a thing and never return, they ask you into a business and shot you out, they set you up to be robbed or raped, etc…
but as a Christian, our experiences dont have to dictate our reactions, we must let God lead, and as the scripture in many places teach, we must always forgive.
we can not even call for revenge most of the times we are hurt because God has promised us that He will take revenge for us.
so the scriptural challenge today is to remain stubbornly good despite that we are surrounded by so wicked a people that Jesus in scriptures chose to call them vipers.
