Revenge it’s not ours to take

BIRD-SQ-SM-600x600When you are betrayed, do you immediately want to get revenge? Getting revenge can make you feel better and some will not admit it!  In the world today, there’s not a lot of room for or vengeance. If you’ve ever been wronged in your life, you probably understand the concept of revenge.  Often it starts with someone doing something wrong to you, and you feel powerless to stop it. You want to get them back, so you create a plot of revenge.

You can view revenge a couple of ways; first, you can argue that you only shouldn’t seek revenge at all. That’s fair, and an entirely noble path to take.  On the other hand, you can look at these things as obstacles in the way of actual revenge. Your biggest obstacle is making sure you don’t feel like an awful person afterwards.

Your other obstacle is simply the obstacle you’re already facing: letting go. I believe these are pretty easy things to overcome because there’s a difference between pure revenge—an eye for an eye—and smart revenge—aiming to bring positive change from your actions. The problem with most revenge is that it’s about bringing harm—and not harmony—to the situation. If you’re going to seek vengeance, you need to believe you’re bringing about positive change.

I am a firm believer revenge is not ours to take.  Remember the saying what goes around comes around.  The best revenge is being a good person and doing the right thing.  Remember Christ should always be your answer to all complicated matters. Trust and believe.

S0094318-PM-MONEYCheating is getting a reward for ability by dishonest means or finding an easy way out of an unpleasant situation. Cheating is generally used for the breaking of rules.

There was a time when cheating had a simple definition, but now days we are a society that is more complex and less accepting of betrayal of any sort. A recent example of cheating to gain an advantage is the New England Patriots, which used illegally deflated balls in a football game. Should we use this example to teach our kids about what is or is not cheating?

Most of us have different opinions when defining cheating. Cheating is definitely defined differently by each individual. I am sure this has much to do with our life experiences or our personal moral values. But make no mistake in certain situations, we can see cheating definitely.

Do you consider copying homework to be cheating? Or, is it just a way of collaborating with classmates. To deceive by trickery is a form of swindling or cheating. I think as a society, we have lost our way on this issue and have gotten very confused on what is right and what is wrong.  What do you Think?
