Get even or forgive?

Luke 17:3-4
 
3 So watch yourselves.
 
“If your brother sins against you, rebuke them; and if he repents, forgive him. 4 Even if he sins against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”…
 
I know the verse in the picture doesn’t match the verse here but I loved the picture! We are going to run into people the DRIVE US NUTS! And Youtube is full of people displaying the wrong reactions! Our culture is “don’t get mad, get even!!!”. In fact attorneys spend thousands of dollars per month on billboards and TV ads trying to pound home this message. DON’T fall into that trap! Put yourself in the other persons shoes and think about how you’d want to be treated. Try forgiveness. May they mess up again? Yep… Don’t you? If they are sorry and want to get better then forgive them like God forgives you (and I) for all the stupid stuff we do! Repent, forgive and have a blessed weekend!
