For many years
I was in a very unkind way.
I was not only talked about behind my back
but I was spoken to in an unkind manner to my face.
a lot of people can relate to this.
There came a time
when I had the to help this person out.
For some reason,
much to my surprise,
I chose to be kind and help.
My action to show love and help not only surprised me,
but it surprised others as well.
I'm sharing this
because I can not tell you
how much my action set me free.
I now had the
to treat this person the same way I had been treated
or I could be kind
and put love into action.
The was mine.
Love your enemies
and bless them that curse you.
I never really understood this maxim
until I put it into practice.
Being kind and showing love did as much for me
as it did for the other person.
This is a good time
to not only show love to those who love us
but to be kind to those who have done us wrong.
