Text of the Day







Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them

 that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you—Matt. 5:44


Here is a way to examine the real disposition of your own heart toward such. Would you cheerfully do them kindness and help them to the extent of your ability to see the error of their way and to overcome it? Can you tenderly pray for them and patiently bear with their weakness, their ignorance and lack of development, and try by a noble example to show them a more excellent way? If such be the case, then it is the sin that you despise, and not the sinner. The sin you should hate, but the sinner, never. Not until God’s unerring judgment declares that the sin and the sinner are inseparably linked together may love let go its hold upon a brother man.
