I’m always amazed how some couples have no problem fighting in public.
Once I stood in the popcorn line at the movies and the couple in front of me were arguing. In this case, the man was way out of line.
I wanted to take his popcorn, soft drink, and hot cheesy nachos and dump them down his pants.
Some people are, well, just flat unlovable. On good days we call them “jerks.” On bad days we’re tempted to cross the line and be jerks right back at them.
It’s for those days the Scriptures urge us:
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. . . . If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath. —Romans 12:17–19
Sometimes this command seems impossible with jerks. And honestly?
Only with God’s help can you deal with the jerks in your life.
