Burning Coals

Proverbs 25:21-22

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

 

Myth

Revenge is a dish best served cold

 

Truth

Revenge is a dish best serve fresh & hot!

 

Challenge

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?
