I agree with Kaydy. The discussions on revenge look mostly like a disagreement on the definition of revenge. I think the bottom line is this: the king acted justly by punishing the wicked servant, and the wicked servant acted unjustly because he treated his servant wrongly.
The question, “How does society shape our view of justice” is the vital question for us to ask. As I mentioned in my previous response, our society will shape and form our minds unless we resist it by steeping ourselves in the word of God. This time of our lives is a very crucial time. We are trying to figure out who we are in God, and what it means to serve Him. The world especially wants to shape our minds at this time of life because we are young. We must be constantly vigilant and close to God.
I’m not saying talking about revenge is unbeneficial or wrong… I am simply saying that it is important for us to understand how society is trying to shape our view of justice.
