39 | enough #Lent2022

Paul writes, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:21)

A television news report. A case of American domestic terrorism. A government building bombed. Many people killed. The trial had been held. The accused found guilty. The reporter was doing a vox pop with those waiting outside the courthouse to hear the sentence handed down.

‘The death penalty would be too good for him’ seemed to be the consensus.

One person, a woman, simply said, “There has been enough killing.” Ω

Reflect: When has loving someone meant exercising self-control? When have you had to curb your desire for vengeance? Pray about it.

What is this? Lent is the 40 days, excluding Sundays, before Easter. Traditionally it is a time of reflection and pilgrimage. To help you on this journey, Sanctuary has put together 40 stories from people both within and beyond the congregation, with associated questions for reflection and prayer. A reading will be uploaded every day of Lent. This year’s theme is Fruit of the Spirit. Why? Read this#Lent2022. Real People, Real Stories: 40 Readings for Lent © Sanctuary, 2022.
