where the hurt should go

Lamentations - 1

where the hurt should go

Lamentations 3:64-66 (JDV)

Lamentations 3:64 You will pay them back what they deserve, Yahveh, according to the work of their hands.
Lamentations 3:65 You will give them a heart filled with anguish. May your curse be on them!
Lamentations 3:66 You will pursue them in anger and destroy them under your sky, Yahveh.

where the hurt should go

The hurt is real, and it has to go somewhere. We should all learn from the Lamenter and let God pay back those who have wronged us. If we choose the path of revenge, the hurt does not stop. It escalates.

Lord, we give top you our pain. Bring justice. We will wait on you, and trust you to right wrongs.
