- Love is……………loving your enemies……….Romans 12:17-21
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Thought for the week: “But overcome evil with good”………when you love your enemies as instructed here, you are giving the goodness of God an opportunity to overcome the evil of another person! What a great way to show the Love of God. This week focus on loving your enemies, like God loved His enemies…..Consider this…..Romans 5:10 says that while we were God’s enemies, He reconciled Himself to us by the death of His Son…………….NOW THAT’S LOVE!!
