How to be Happy

Let God Deal With Your Enemies
—And be done with bitterness

When wrongs have been done to us, we naturally want justice. In serious cases we want the wrongdoers to be duly brought to account and to make amends or be punished.

Up to a point, we may be within our rights and may find satisfaction in seeing a just outcome. Often, however, such an outcome is not worth the price, and vengeance is not a means of happiness although it may please you for a little while.

If you are the victim of wrongdoing, seeking revenge may only make you more miserable. When justice is not simply and lawfully obtained, pursuing it may double your burden.

There is a better way that ensures happiness: let God deal with your enemies.

1 Let Enemies Be Accountable to God
