Due to prejudices and biases, I am treated poorly at times. It isn’t an easy thing to talk about but I will admit that I became angry and bitter about it. I gathered years and years of evidence to support my claims and I prepared to use it to win my “case.” Next, I envisioned “their” downfall and I took great pleasure in the thought of it. The fact is: I was a victim of prejudices and biases; however, I developed prejudices and biases against certain people in my life. To be honest, they can’t do anything right in my eyes. I question every move they make and I must be talked into helping them. After all, I know that they would not help me. (Okay! I know what you’re thinking.) “That isn’t Christian-like, Nicole.” Well, this is my truth and I feel comfortable sharing this with my brothers and sisters.
I feel comfortable because someone else might need to be delivered and we can go on this journey together. Romans 12:18-21 NIV states, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary: If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” So what does that mean? You mean to tell me that I should honor their request, even though they dishonor my name with their words and deeds? Well, the word said, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” In other words, their actions should not dictate how we treat them. Yeah, I know. It’s hard but we have to make room for God.
