The Right Remedy for Injuries

THERE appear, in human experience, to be many instances in which one person has injured another, intentionally or unintentionally. And when the so-called injury seems to be intentional it appears, to human sense, that there is an excuse for resentment or even for retaliation or revenge. But the Apostle Paul said, "Recompense to no man evil for evil."

In the article entitled "Love Your Enemies," Mary Baker Eddy says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 11), "To mete out human justice to those who persecute and despitefully use one, is not leaving all retribution to God and returning blessing for cursing." And on the next page she says, "Never return evil for evil; and, above all, do not fancy that you have been wronged when you have not been."
