The Story of Two Wrongs vs One Right

“Two wrongs don’t make a right” has rung in my ears and has committed to knowledge at a young age. There is wrong and right. “Bad” people are just those who decided to commit a wrong, an offence that has reprocussions. The one attacked in some way is the victim. And vengeance belongs to the Lord, who will repay an unrepentant act some day and eternally. That is the idea. For the victim to repay now does not make the crime right or atoned for. That being said, my dad was a Marine and when my sister’s boyfriend beat her, he whooped him then called the police. And when I would see kids picked on growing up and then later, I always stepped in to see justice was done. There is something within some or maybe many of us that wants wrong to be punished and right to be the norm. And I attribute this to our makeup, having all been created by God, the Holy One, the good One. We all know right from wrong attributed something in us says, “That is wrong” or “That is right”. Those who choose to do wrong will be punished by God someday, even if they get away with it now. So it is in His hands. And as I have grown closer to Him, I bow humbly to His direction and control. I want to let Him do what He will. I wish for God’s will to be done. I believe that is what Jesus meant by “turn the other cheek”. To stop someone doing wrong in their tracks to minimize damage but then let God deal with their fate and not us pursue further harm. God cannot change their heart back if they are dead. Then it is too late. So stopping them and then allowing law enforcement to do their job allows a chance for contemplation and hopefully repentence. This made sense to me after years of working this out. So I wanted to share my findings for those who have also pondered this. Attitude of the heart is really the heart of the matter, pun intended. Lol ❤
