My previous posts may sound just a bunch of rants regarding how evil our age has become. I just want our new real estate brokers to be aware that swindlers exist and they should really choose the people they transact with. Some might ask: “Why didn’t I file a case against that licensed real estate broker?” This post will answer just that.
Being a Christian means usually going against the norm. Listen to what the Bible says about revenge:
“You have heard the law that says the punishment must match the injury: ‘An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also. If you are sued in court and your shirt is taken from you, give your coat, too.” – Matthew 5:38-40
“Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it.” – 1 Peter 3:9
Loving a real estate broker who turned out to be a swindler is difficult. But, wholeheartedly, that is the right and peaceful thing to do. If someone wronged you, pray and ask if you yourself did anything wrong to deserve it. Then, pray and give grace to the person who dishonored your profession’s code of ethics.
”If you want to enjoy life
And see many happy days,
Keep your tongue from speaking evil
And your lips from telling lies.
Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right,
And His ears are open to their prayers.
But the Lord turns his face
Against those who do evil.” – 1 Peter 3:10
This is an encouragement and I do hope you learned from my mistake. God bless you.
