Yesterday I watched a very interesting episode of Bonanza. Like most episodes of the show, it made me want to send my fist through the television screen more than once. However, as in all other episodes of the show, the ending proved that right never loses and wrong never wins. It also proved several other things, as well. Mainly, it reminded me of two key verses in the Bible: Romans 12:19-20 which say, “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”
I have included the aforementioned episode below. Please take the time this week to watch and learn from the wisdom, patience, and courage of Ben Cartwright. I am sure the writers of this particular episode did not realize they were fulfilling Scripture when they wrote the last four minutes of the episode.
If you do not know Jesus as the Lord of your life, I invite you to give your heart and your life to Him today, before it is eternally too late for you. If you will turn from all sin and trust Jesus alone to save you, He will save you today and keep you saved forever.
