It is hard, when we face trials brought about through the actions of others, to remember that those who oppress us are still children of our same Father. We want to lash out in some way – to seek our own protection and defend ourselves and find justice (as if justice didn’t condemn us as well). But the truth is that we have no right to do any of that. The only thing we can rightfully do is wait upon God – He is our Father and theirs. He will do what He can to save their souls and ours. Ultimately all will be made right – any actions contrary to that amount to us attempting to ascend to the throne of God in the same way that Satan did.
