Christian friends, are there some who defy you? Do you feel you must run roughshod over them to better your own status? Follow the command of the Savior and respond instead with love.
 
God bids us love our enemies,
As hard as that may be;
The battle He will fight for us
And give the victory.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - In overcoming an enemy, nothing is more effective than the weapon of love.
