REVENGE: The All-flesh sin!

"For we know Him who said, 'VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY.' And again, 'THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.'"
Hebrews 10:30
When Marie Lupe Cooley, 41, of Jacksonville, Fla., saw a help-wanted ad in the newspaper for a position that looked suspiciously like her current job — and with her boss's phone number listed — she assumed she was about to be fired. ... .

So, police say, she went to the architectural office where she works late Sunday night and erased 7 years' worth of drawings and blueprints, estimated to be worth $2.5 million. ... .

As for the job, Cooley originally wasn't in danger of losing it. The ad was for Hutchins' wife's company. The firm told that Cooley no longer is employed there.

Revenge offers up a plethora of temptations with related biblical admonitions: unforgiveness [
Matthew 6:12], thought-life [2 Corinthians 10:5 (also obedience)], spiritual gifts [Galatians 5:22; specifically "self-control"], self-incrimination [Matthew 7:1-6; 12], God's example [Nehemiah 9:17b], and much much more.
"Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice."
Ephesians 4:31
