  • Foster Simbeye on Romans 12:17
    It is not for man to revenge, but for God Himself. As christians, Jesus Christ must be our standard, He didn't do evil to those who crusify Him, but he asked His heavenly Father to forgive them. So, let us also pray for those who offended us and forgive them, in so doing Our heavenly father will also forgive us.
  • Nomsa on Romans 12:17
    The word of God disagrees with revenge,if any man do you wrong or hurts you in any way you forgive them .Leave everything in the hands of God just as He said in His word that vengence is for Me.God is the Prince of Peace so let His peace reign in our lives.
