I saw this clip and it caused me to pause and reflect. In an interview on CBS, Actor Mandy Patinkin who played Inigo Montoya shares reflections on the classic movie The Princess Bride. He says that his favorite and the most potent line in the film is not the one you have memorized and maybe even said, “My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father prepare to die!” but toward the end of the movie when he says,
“I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it is over,
I do not know what to do with the rest of my life.”
- Read the line again out loud and then reflect on it.
The truth is the we have all been hurt,but how many of us have let the wound control and direct our lives?
Maybe it is about time we got out of the revenge business and begin to figure out what to do with the rest of our lives.
Take time to read these scriptures below (click on them and they verses will come up)
- Matthew 18:15-35
- Romans 12:9-21
- Deut 32:35
- Proverbs 25:21-22
Do you have a favorite Bible passage that talks about revenge and forgiveness?
How about a favorite line from The Princess Bride?
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. -Romans 12:21
