Might Does Not Make Right

In this world, too many people live by the motto, “Might makes right.” We all know someone who pushes their way, bullies others and demands to be heard. They make our lives difficult because we live in fear of them. Those of us with gentle spirits are even more susceptible to those who are demanding and insensitive. There will always be those who use words and actions to get their way, and we will be hurt in the process. Can it be enough to know that God commands us to let Him be the judge of others? We are not exchange assaultive words, nor hurt those who hurt us. We don’t have to set ourselves up to be hurt, and can certainly set strong boundaries, but we must choose to be peaceful people in spite of how others choose to live their lives.
