21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
22 For you will heap burning coals on his head,
And the Lord will reward you
Revenge is a dish best served cold
Revenge is a dish best serve fresh & hot!
The purpose of a burning coal is to provide fire that produces light, heat & warmth. Instead of allowing your enemies to freeze in the cold, believers are called to live out the Gospel of mercy & grace. Our enemies will be filled with burning convictions to repent through our Christ-like attitude.
The world tells us to hate our enemies. Jesus teaches that we should love our enemies (Matthew 5:44-47) The best revenge towards your enemies is to make them your friend. Who is your enemy? How can you provide burning coals to your enemies?
