Obadiah (Letter 31, Larry Crabb’s 66 Love Letters)

Celebrate! I Will Defeat Evil

Never exact vengeance on another. Only one who is not worthy of judgment himself can administer just retribution without sinning himself. Vengeance is God’s prerogative, not ours. His vengeance is always rooted in redemptive desire. He kills to resurrect.

Forgiveness builds community. Getting even destroys it.
