Feb. 24, 2018 (Mt 5:43-48)

(From the Sermon on the Mount) One day, Pres. Lincoln was speaking kindly to a Confederate soldier. He was overheard by a woman who was shocked at this. She told the President that we should be destroying our enemy not befriending him. Pres. Lincoln responded: “Madam, the best way to destroy our enemy is to befriend him.” How do we try to live out Jesus’ teaching to “love our enemies?”
