By Don Ruhl

Some people think they can have what they want, or that they can promote their agenda, by using violence, but the Holy Spirit says,

The violence of the wicked will destroy them,
Because they refuse to do justice.
(Proverbs 21.7) 

We have to be patient before we see justice, but it will happen. If you doubt it, just think on what you know of history: In time the violent always fall.


  • Have you tried violence to advance your agenda?
  • Did it work?
  • Did you suffer for it?
