When we are hurt by someone, our natural reaction is to hurt someone else. We want them to pay for our pain. We want the taste of that sweet revenge. In this series, Ed Young shows that when we focus everything we have, everything we are, and everything we do on getting someone back, we can never move forward to experience the freedom of forgiveness... and of forgiving.
It's natural to want to seek revenge when someone hurts us. When our egos are bruised or our self-esteem is damaged, we want someone to pay. What we often fail to see, though, is that seeking revenge leads us away from the very peace we want. In this message, Ed Young looks again at the biblical story of Mordecai and Haman. And as we look at their reactions, we see that leaving room for God's wrath is better than getting even—it's freedom.
