1 Peter 3:9 (NLT)
Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate when people say unkind things about you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God wants you to do, and he will bless you for it.

When someone offends you at work, you have the choice—at that moment—to get offended or not and to retaliate or not. The easy thing to do is to get offended and to pay them back for what they did to you. In fact, it feels good at the moment. But you will regret it later. What follows is bitterness and resentment. Paying them back does not take away the offense or the hurt. Instead, you must choose to forgive that person and bless them. That is what God wants us to do. At the moment, it will be hard to do because it goes against your flesh. But God will bless you for it, and His blessings are always best. They will overtake you.

Furthermore, God will vindicate you when you are innocent and don’t take matters into your own hands. He will clear your name and your reputation. “He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun” (Psalm 37:6 NLT).
