People's Bible Notes for Romans 12:21

Ro 12:21 Be not overcome by evil. Don't let the fact that you are treated wickedly induce you to do wrong, but overcome evil with good , by returning good for evil. This sums up the whole matter respecting the treatment of adversaries. Happy would it be if the Christian world could come up to these requirements! The logic of kind deeds is more powerful than the logic of argument.

So many people act developmentally out of what enacts upon and in them. Act or cause what you want in and around you and you will have to live in that action, and that creation etc..

it is a verse that 's so hard to comply, but we can, through prayers and asking strenght and more patience from our dear God,we can overcome the bad things done or harsh words spoken unto you.

Personally, i can say that, we should not say because people have done something bad to us and replace it with evil, it must be replaced by good.
