Jesus tells us to act out of love and says that acting out of love is better than acting out of revenge. What does your experience tell you?
Perhaps you have at times hit back in revenge when you have been hurt or offended. What effect did this have on you, on others and on your relationship with them? Contrast this with the times when you resisted the urge to retaliate. What effect did this have on you, on others and on your relationship with them … at the time, and in the longterm?
From other passages in the Gospels it is clear that Jesus did not mean that we should ignore injustices and never make a stand against others. What lessons have you learned in life on when and how to make a stand? What wisdom would

you share with others from your experience?
