If it is pos­si­ble, so far as it de­pends on you, live peace­ably with all. Beloved, never avenge your­selves, but leave room for the wrath of God. Ro­mans 12:18-19

Our God recog­nises that his ‘‘chil­dren’’ are at dif­fer­ent stages of devel­op­ment in their Chris­tian life. For those younger in their faith liv­ing peace­ably with their neigh­bour may not be pos­si­ble, es­pe­cially when the neigh­bour con­stantly pro­vokes them. Nev­er­the­less they re­main God’s beloved and he, as the Right­eous Judge, asks that vengeance and wrath be left to him.
