The sermon this morning was about urban transformation through urban mission but the verse that put me in much thought was not about mission. It has to do with what has been eating me over the past week.
It is Romans 12:21, "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (ESV)
It is a tough thing to do but it is nevertheless a command. I will dwell on it this week so that I will not be overcome by evil but to indeed overcome evil with good, even if the evil is still an onslaught.
Tough, but necessary.
