"Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Try to do what is honorable in everyone's eyes." Romans 12:17 (HCSB)
Honorable - beautiful by reason of purity of heart and life, and hence praiseworthy -it is morally good and noble. Don't seek to settle the accounts. No matter what someone has done to you, don't ever "give it back." God teaches in His Word that we are to 'turn the other cheek" and not take upon ourselves the position of judge, jury, and executioner. We are to just let God handle it.
I hear you say - that's not my nature. You are right. Man's nature (the sin nature) says to get them before they get us. To do unto others before they can do it to us. However, God's nature in us says to let Him handle it. To be pure. To be morally good. To be morally noble.
Today, seek as many ways as you can to be honorable in everyone's eyes. Have a pure heart that overflows into your workplace and to your students and co-workers. Today be honorable.
