Burn ‘Em

“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you”. (Luke 6:27-28)

Read Luke 6:27-38

The only decent way to get rid of one’s personal enemies is to—not kill them with knife or bullet or social frost, but to burn ’em up. But only one kind of fire will do it, the fire of love, God’s own love, that burns you out while it burns him up; all the bitterness in your heart goes out, melting into tenderness, and all the enmity in him goes up, consumed in regret and sorrow.
