Love Your Enemy – A Letter from God

Dear Child,

Love your enemy. It is a healthy attitude.

A person once said, “I destroy my enemies by making them my friends.” The wisdom behind this statement is not so much about forming new relationships. It is about a healthy mind set.

Look at your enemies in a different light. Look for similarities in your background, value system, ethics and vulnerability. Those could be keys to explain what motivates them.

Look for and assess positive characteristics. It could minimize your hurts caused by their actions. Analyze their point of view. This will give you more realistic expectations. Look at their negative behavior. That will validate the boundaries you set.

I told you in My Word that if your enemy is hungry or thirsty, give him food and water (Proverbs 25:21,22). This causes two positive results. Your kindness puts you in a position for My blessing. It also disarms your enemy.

Love,

Wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:24)
