10 thoughts on “Seek charity over revenge”

  1. ” …if my motives are sinister, they will harm myself only, and I shall have the unselfish joy of knowing that the wrong motives are not yours, to react on yourselves.” Mis 263:1
    “The wrong done another reacts most heavily against one’s self. ” S&H: 449:7
    I have just had to pray about this very thing today. Am so grateful for the protection of not reacting to it. – thank you Evan. Mortal mind has no vehicle or target.

  2. A grudge doesn’t make one happy.
    I found yesterdays blog so interesting as I had no idea that the lemmings story was not a true one. I wonder what else I accept unquestioning. Thank you all.

  3. Reading this I realized I mustn’t seek revenge or carry a grudge against myself, either!! I’ve done that in the past, but I have the power of God’s love to stop that. Since I, too, am one of God’s people, I can & must be daily loving & forgiving myself, just like I do for my neighbors. Because God is the great I AM, all is well.

  4. Perfect timing. So difficult to do when one runs into a stone wall of unreal anger towards another, but nonetheless God’s way is clear. Thanks for reminder, Evan.

  5. Thanks Evan and , wow thanks Josef for such a clear truth which just wipes away all error!
    It matches with the last 2 sentences of yesterday’s SpiritView, namely that absolute nothing else but God is in control of everything. I love that great Truth and what Josef wrote!

  6. Do you feel loved…or judged?… at __________ at __________ or at ____________?

    I do not always feel loved at _________. But I realize, more quickly now, that when I am being judgmental, I am going to reflect that state of mind back at me!! Such is the human-interaction-scene! But, thank goodness, I am learning that divine Love is, in absolute fact, always loving alll of us alllll of the time, always has and always will. We just have to not-react to the stuff going on in the realm of human minds…for there are are 8Billion of us, all with differing opinions, reactions, needs, aims, etc. And all the while? Truth and Its infinite perfection!

    Which will I choose to have/believe/enjoy, today?

  7. Ulta, loved your post and reminding us of yesterday’s
    “absolute nothing else but God is in control of everything” Love that great Truth too. Fits in with the Golden Text in the Bible Lesson on “Truth.”
    “The word of God (Truth) is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword.” Heb 4:12 (to 1st.) [Good News Translation in Today’s English Version-Second Edition] Also the King James Version “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (=

    Thank you for the post Evan and replies today. (=
