If Your Enemy…

Preaching to myself… feel free to read

Proverbs 25

 21If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
         And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
      22For you will heap burning coals on his head,
         And the LORD will reward you.

Romans 12

14Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

   15Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

   16Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly Do not be wise in your own estimation.

   17Never pay back evil for evil to anyone Respect what is right in the sight of all men.

   18If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.

   19Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord.

   20“BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD.”

   21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
