Some people just get us so angry that we want to cause them to feel some of the pain and problems they have caused us. We might even stay awake at night planning what we are going to do to get our revenge.  I Corinthians 13:5-6 lists five reasons why Christians are to choose to forgive instead of retaliate because love: "... does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth."  And if vengeance is due - God says we are to leave that to Him to deal with. Mishandling your anger towards others can often harm you more than anyone else. That's what this weekends encouraging message topic is about. Listen and be encouraged to act in love and put aside the anger and hate. Pastor Chris Teien #RiverRockChurchMN
