Jesus said: “You know that you have been taught, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, but I tell you no to try to get even with a person who has done something to you. When someone slaps your right cheek, turn and let that person slap your other cheek. If someone sues you for your shirt, give up your coat as well. If a soldier forces you to carry his pack one mile, carry it two miles.   When people ask you for something, give it to them. When they want to borrow money, lend it to them.”

 

Jesus is telling us not to take revenge when we have been wronged by someone, but to forgive. Let go of our anger and leave it to God. You know the phrase “let go and let God”. Not always easy to do, but a lot better for us and our peace of mind.
