We’re All Made of the Same Dirt

“Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the Lord to handle the matter.
Proverbs 20:22

Sometimes we think God needs a little help bringing justice into our situation. After all, someone has wronged us and we need that person to learn a few things. Yes, we’ve been wronged, all right, but what’s rising up within us probably isn’t going to make the situation better. Most likely our pride has been wounded and we’re reacting with anger.

Maybe the mud we see on them is reflecting the mud on us. And maybe, just maybe, God allowed their wrong to expose our own mud.
