Eye On Integrity-Overcoming Evil With Good

December 3rd, 2018

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Romans 12:21.

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

The way of the Gospel takes the high road through times of adversity and conflict. When someone hurts us, the natural reflex is to seek revenge. But we are not called to do things in the natural realm. We are called to follow the example of Jesus, who overcame evil with good at the cross. That is where He died for the very same people who despised Him. Romans 12:17 says, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.”

Overcoming evil with good is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
