Aggressor and Victim
Violence is such a strange thing. When we sin we perform an act of spiritual violence, except, this time, we are not only the aggressor, we are the victim. The act of spiritual violence is enacted against us by our own selves. The only way we can break the cycle of violence against ourselves is to leave our violent side behind and nurture our peaceful selves. An act of violence is a choice, not a destiny, and we can choose not to be violent, we can choose a path of peace. Lord Jesus help us.
