You have a right to self defence and must not cast pearl before swine. These two with turning the left cheek need to be considered and applied to every scenario of abuse.
I agree ..
all things done in love ..
love is the basis on which you should decide ..
Jesus reads hearts, so if you do use love as your motive, it is justified .. it is in love of obedience we do not take our own revenge .. for revenge most often is ego, and when it's not, by doing so, we then nullify God's revenge for us by taking our own ..
1 sometimes it is in love that we do not turn the other cheek, for if we do, then a person who can be taught what they did was wrong behavior isn't receiving any correction, thus it is not love to allow a person to continue in sin and not make an effort to help them correct it ..
2 HOW we make this effort also is important .. as kind as possible is the desired method .. but "tough love" (as Jesus also displayed) can be effective if done without ego involved by maintaining your objective in mind at all times ..
note: if your motive corrupts, so does your justification become corrupted ..
God Bless you ..
