I wondered, have I ever inadvertently given evil a temporary resident status in my own home?

Yesterday I read, "If you repay good with evil, evil will never leave your house." Prov. 17:13

I wondered, have I ever inadvertently given evil a temporary resident status in my own home? Am I guilty of repaying evil for good?

When my husband is trying to be nice when things are tense, do I lash out of old hurt feelings rather than responding kindly?

When my kids are trying to make good choices, do I respond in anger because I don't find their choices good "enough"?

Have I let fear determine my emotional well being when failing to look at circumstances through eyes of faith?

Friend, evil is not a welcome visitor in our homes. For some, it might be time to serve it an eviction notice.
