You shall love your neighbor as your self.
Who is my neighbor?
Let me tell you a story... Who was the neighbor to the man in need? Go and do like wise.
Pray for your enemies.
Who are my enemies? How did they become my enemies?
Is enmity a choice? What choices did I make? What choices did they make?
As much as lies within you live at peace with all people.
How do I do that when others are choosing the path of enmity daily?
I don't want my enemies to be my footstools. I don't want them to be humiliated. I just don't want enemies.
Is there anything I can do to help someone else choose peace and reconciliation?
One thing I have learned is that forgiveness does get easier when it is repeated on a daily basis for daily offenses.
