Psalms 67:1-3 May GOD be gracious to us and bless us and make HIS face shine upon us, that YOUR ways may be known on earth, YOUR salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, O GOD; may all the peoples praise you.
诗篇六十七：1-3 愿 上帝怜悯我们，赐福与我们，用脸光照我们，好教世界得知你的道路，万国得知你的救恩。 上帝阿，愿列邦称赞你！愿万民都称赞你！

Mastering Evil with Good
The apostle Paul writes to the Romans: "Bless your persecutors; never curse them, bless them. ... Never pay back evil with evil. ... Never try to get revenge. ... If your enemy is hungry, give him something to eat; if thirsty, something to drink. ... Do not be mastered by evil, but master evil with good" (Romans 12:14-21). These words cut to the heart of the spiritual life. They make it clear what it means to choose life, not death, to choose blessings not curses. But what is asked of us here goes against the grain of our human nature. We will only be able to act according to Paul's words by knowing with our whole beings that what we are asked to do for others is what God has done for us.
