Sweet Revenge

Abe Lemons

Abe Lemons was asked if he was bitter at Texas Athletic Director Deloss Dodds who fired him as the Longhorn’s basketball coach. He replied, “Not at all, but I plan to buy a glass-bottomed car so I can watch the look on his face when I run over him.”

Our sinful human nature tempts us to seek revenge when we think someone has wronged us. But Scripture urges us to have a forgiving heart and give up any perceived right to get back at those who offend us.

“Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.”—Romans 12:19
