First, because the summons was very vague, we only knew in generalities what it was we were defending. It's tough to be prepared to argue your point when you don't know exactly what you're arguing.
Second, the other party involved got very nasty and mean. We're not really sure why, but they came out with guns-a-blazin'. Not fun. At any rate, we lost the case and came home not really knowing what hit us.
It's hard not to be angry when things like this happen, but I still stick to the verses I quoted before and also with the rhetorical question, "Shall not the Lord of all the earth do right?"
If you happen to be struggling with something that is or feels like injustice, then be comforted by this...
Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay" says the LORD. On the contrary,
If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Blessings in the midst of the storm,
