July 9 – House Rules

“Do not repay anyone evil for evil” is today’s word from the twelfth chapter of Romans.

We never would! From our mothers’ knee we were taught better.

Mother did not always tell us that a little bitterness, a little rejection, a little slander is coin in that dark and dangerous realm.

There is . . . not to argue with Mother! . . . there is a repayment for evil that Scripture promotes. It is engraved over the doors of many hearts . . . we repay evil with good! (Thessalonians 5:15)

When our enemies are hungry or thirsty, we feed them, and give them something to drink. (Psalm 25:21.) It’s “house rules,” here in Cor Unum.
