17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 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. 20 On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[b]
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good
JAMES 1:12 (CEV)
12 God will bless you, if you don’t give up when your faith is being tested. He will reward you with a glorious life,[a] just as he rewards everyone who loves him.
God is more anxious to bestow His blessings on us than we are to receive them.
