Avenge or Forgive?

If someone hurts me should I forgive or take revenge?  Some might say it depends on the nature of hurt.  I strongly feel I must not even think of revenge let alone do something to that effect whatever the nature of the hurt.  There are cases that need corrective measures or punishment – not revenge. Even in such cases the punishment must not be carried out by me. It must be decided and carried out by the judiciary.  All I must do is file a suit. Even that must be done without any thought of vengeance but out of consideration for the good of the individual and of the society.

 A better alternative than approaching the judiciary in most cases will be to forgive the offender from my heart and pray for him that he may change and become a better person. This can have a great effect on the offender causing conversion.

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Jesus

“Am I not conquering my enemies when I make them my friends?” Lincoln
