“LOVE YOUR ENEMIES”

***

Whom does the Sun bless?

Both the evil and the good

Love your enemies

***

NOTE: “Love your enemies” is an excellent way to avoid committing the sin of envy. Matthew 5:44-45 (King James Version) states this:

44 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;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
