The Bible teaches us: “Do not respond to evil with evil and cursing with cursing, but instead bless others and do not curse them.” Jealousy and resentment rob us of happiness and peace and it makes us live in constant suffering.
These sufferings are the consequences of our internal attitudes. When we forgive others, we can free ourselves from this kind of suffering. We thank God that there is no resentment or revenge in the Christian faith. Like Jesus Christ who never repaid evil to his enemies, we, too, are following in his footsteps of suffering.
