Love Them That Persecute
by Randy Chambers, 2004-11-21
Romans 12:17-18, NIV; Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be
careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it
depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Time after time in scripture, we are encouraged not to return evil for evil, but instead,
to show kindness--even to them who do evil to us. Turn the other cheek and
love them that persecute you are the words and rules by which the child of God
is called to live.. For in so doing, we are the reflections of our Heavenly Father,
demonstrating and unconditional love regardless of the treatment to ourselves.
