“How Christians Overcome an Enemy!”

“We are too apt to resent insults and retaliate, when others say or do evil things to us. The Christian way is either not to speak at all, or to give the soft answer that turns away wrath. Not only is this the Christian way, it is also the way of wisdom. We must live by the wisdom of Jesus Christ revealed in Luke 6:27-29. That is, to ‘Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.  If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also.’  So then, the lesson our Lord teaches us is ‘to bear wrong patiently, to forgive injury, to return kindness for unkindness, to return good for evil, and to return love for hate.’” ~ J.R. Miller
