The Altar of Vengeance

The vengeance theme pervades worldwide human thinking, it always has. All injury perpetrated against us we too believe requires payment. 

When choosing unforgiveness, please - first count the cost:

  • The choice is to live with betterness or bitterness, freedom or bondage.
  • Unforgiveness drinks a poison, daily expecting the other person to die. - Nelson Mandela
  • When embarking on a journey of revenge first dig two graves. - Confucius
  • Stubbornness and unforgiveness are the enemies, a deceiving powerhouse that continues to permit another to hurt me. Stubbornness and pride are one the same.
  • Those who nurse bitterness are invalids. ~ Corrie ten Boom

As you have done it will be done to you - your deeds will return to your head. (Obadiah 15)

Forgiveness is a spiritual transaction, for Heaven honors my decisions upon earth. (See Matthew 18:18, 35)

In the end isn't each believer only a vagabond seized and then clothed by a raggedy grace? Grace always takes us as we are and not as we should be. Who are we to withhold such grace from a fellow vagabond too?
