Memorable Scripture: No Vendetta

2 Corinthians 11:24-25
From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;

If Paul were angry or bitter, I would not blame him one bit.
His own kinsman, the Jews, beat him. He received other beatings and was stoned one time and left for dead (Acts 14:19).
However, Paul was not angry, bitter, or vindictive; nor did he blame God.
He continued to use these events in his life to glorify his life in Christ.
Paul viewed his life in Christ more important than any personal agenda.

I know bad things happen to you that are completely out of your control.
Don’t become angry or vengeful.
Jesus said to pray for those that persecute and abuse you – pray and do not curse.
