Love your Enemies

He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there, and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. The men said, “This is the day the LORD spoke of when he said to you, ‘I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish.’” Then David crept up unnoticed and cut off a corner of Saul’s robe. 1 Samuel 24:3&4

David had opportunities to take down Saul but he didn’t do it because of values he held very dear. Even when he was coaxed and encouraged to do it, he still refused. On one account, one of his men offered to do it if David will only consent to it.

We have no power over other people’s disposition towards us; however, how we act or react to them is our choice. Two wrongs will never make a right. Our goal should be to act towards people not react.

When we react, it is in retaliation, based on the other person’s action towards us, this leads to a ‘tit for tat’ situation. When we act on the other hand, it is based on our own inner values, integrity and character. This is more difficult, it is called taking the high road. The low road is when we treat others worse than they’ve treated us, on the middle road; we treat others just as we have been treated. On the high road, we treat others better than they have treated us.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…Matt.5:44

May God give you the strength of character to be able to take the high road always in Jesus’ name.

Indeed there is no joy in taking revenge but changing your enemy so that he likes you as well. Very motivating and convincing way to tell a good story. Thank you very much.
