Law of Non Retaliation

When we are in the secular world, we find many instances of retaliation, of tit for tat, and getting even with others or "doing unto others before they do unto you." This worldly, self preserving mindset is totally opposed to Jesus' way for He said to turn the other cheek and do good to those who hate you. As we move along the path of conversion, we will find ourselves confronted by those who hate us. Now our resolve to follow Christ and imitate Him meets a test. Do we retaliate or do we turn the other cheek? What would Jesus do?
