For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves but leave room for the wrath of God; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord.”

Romans 2: 1
O the depth and the richness and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Why do you pass judgment on your brother or sister? Or why do you despise your brother or sister? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.
