Have you ever heard this? ” You don’t owe him a thing.” Or, “I don’t owe you anything, you can just forget it!”
Maybe, like me, you have even said that once or twice. After reading these verses, I will think before I open my mouth to say it again.
That woman who drove right into the last parking place even though she could see you were turning in, on the day you were really in a hurry? Do you owe her a piece of your mind, or do you owe her a smile and a hello?
That guy at work that talks bad about you to everyone, asks you to help him on a task. You don’t owe him anything. Or, do you owe him some time and some grace?
Definitely a reason not to react to someone who bugs you, but to stop for a beat, and then respond with the love you owe her.

Be kind and compassionate to one another…. (Ephesians 4:32),
