Two motorists coming from opposite directions met at a single lane bridge.
"Back up so I can cross," one motorist called out to the other.
"No, you back up so I can cross," replied the other.
"I won't back up! You back up," responded the first motorist.
"Never! You back up first," retorted the second motorist.
This argument continued for some time until one motorist exclaimed, "I don't back up for fools!"
"I do," said the other motorist, and backed up. Both motorists then were able to cross the bridge.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. . . . Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
-- Romans 12:17a, 21 NIV
