Wounds from Good People

Evil men wreck evil, but often it’s good men who wound the most. NOT the devils who have stabbed in the back, but the angels of compassion who fan the wound site with the blade of the wounding-knife still deeply embedded. It’s NOT the vengeful adversaries, but the envoys of justice whose pious rage is matched only by the ferocity of their insecurity and obsession for attention. These good people are everywhere. As they themselves might also be wounded, respond with meekness and kindness. And if wrongly accused, slandered, or unjustly-treated, remember that gentleness is might, restraint is power, silence is speech, and grace is the remedy. You WILL heal to heal (1 Peter 2:21-23).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
