1 How To Deal With Bad People Rom 12:17-21

2 Introduction 0 Have you ever tried your best to get along with someone but they seem to not cooperate 0 No matter what you do it seems like the other person is intent on being difficult 0 Have you ever been in a situation where you were doing your best to be a Christian and the other person mistreated you 0 What should you do when people treat you bad? 0 In these next few verses Paul gives us instructions on what to do or how to deal with bad people 0 You feel like no matter how nice you are people stab you in the back 0 No matter how much you try to get along, people do you wrong 0 Mistreat you, abuse you, and use you 0 This is what God wants you to do

3 Reaction v17 0 Recompense means to give back. It means to give a reward. 0 We should not treat people bad because they mistreat us. 0 Read Lev 24:19-20 0 People were not rewarding others fairly 0 Kill my child –and I wipe out your entire family. 0 Jesus taught us how we should react when bad people mistreat us. 0 Matt 5:39-44, 46 0 Providing things honest means to present things that are good 0 To take though before hand (predetermine to good) 0 All men excludes no one 0 Doing things that are honorable and good is not limited to man’s standards 0 II Cor 8:21

4 Reason v18 0 We must use judgment when dealing with people 0 Everyone is different. 0 Some people, no matter how hard you try you cannot get along with them and they can’t get along with anybody. 0 If possible means that there is a possibility that it will not work 0 As much in you means we must give our very best effort 0 To live peacefully means getting along 0 We should be peacemakers not problem makers 0 Mat 5:9 0 The gospel will cause us not to live in peace with some people 0 Matt 10:34-37 0 Family 0 Friends 0 Denominations, Muslims

5 Responsibility v19 0 Man 0 Avenge means to retaliate 0 We should not take things into our own hands (vigilante justice) 0 God will work things out on his own time table 0 Give place to wrath (it is o.k. to be angry) 0 Anger can be therapeutic 0 But we cannot let it fester Eph 4:26; Ps 7:11 0 God 0 God will punish the wicked! 0 God knows how to bring bad people down in way to cause them to know him 0 We are not always a part of the process 0 We should not think that God does not know about all of our problems 0 I Pet 5:6-7

6 Responsibility v20 0 Man 0 If we see someone in need we should help them! 0 It does not matter whether they are a friend or an enemy 0 Pro 3:27 0 Ex: The parable of the Good Samaritan 0 When we do good to those who mistreat us it will effect their conscience 0 We should not do good for this reason (to make them ashamed) 0 We do good because God commands us to do so 0 We do good because God expects us to treat people good 0 Matt 7:12 0 Gal 6:10

7 Resistance v21 0 It is easy to let evil into our minds and into our lives Eph 4:26-27 0 There is evil all around us and the god of this world is constantly influencing people Mark 4:19 0 If we are not careful we will be suspicious of everybody because of few bad experiences 0 When we commit evil acts toward others who have wronged us we have become overcome with evil! 0 Paul tells us to overcome evil with GOOD 0 This is how we overcome the evil system of this world---by doing good 0 Doing good to those who have wronged us will not save souls but it will serve as a testimony to our belief in God 0 Our example can cause people to become interested in trying to obtain the same peace that we have Matt 5:16

8 Conclusion 0 Joseph 0 Despised by his brothers because of his coat 0 Sold into slavery 0 Treated his brothers good when they needed help 0 David and Saul 0 Saul was king and became jealous of David 0 Saul tried to kill David 0 David did not retaliate----would not lay hands on God’s anointed 0 Jesus 0 Came unto his own and his own received him not 0 During his ministry his life was threatened on several occasions 0 Experienced suffering during trial and on the cross demonstrated the ultimate example for us
