Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. [1 Thessalonians 5:15 NIV]
This particular verse is telling us not to pay back wrong for wrong and telling us to always do good for everyone and even to those who do wrong to us. so, how easy is it to pay back good for wrong?
will be expecting your replies

The fact is that, it is not easy to pay good for wrong, it takes the grace of God to get to that stage. I pray for more grace to be able to live as God want us to live.
In our sinful humanity we will always want to pay badly for evil, but that is the work that the Snato spirit does in us to convince ourselves of all evil, everything that is not of good name, is our conscience, remembering what Jesus told us , love your enemies and pray for what they curse, only then will they bear witness that they are children of God.
It becomes easier to pay evil with good when we die to self and live by Christ.
Old nature strives in vengeance but the new man which is created after righteousness speaks peace and forgiveness.
