How To Love Your Enemies By Rev Martin Luther King Jr.

After the terrible ordeal I went through
earlier this year in the hands of loved ones, I
sought for ways to have peace with myself and
them. So far, it has been futile. But yesterday,
the daily verse from the Bible site I read was
about forgiving our enemies.
''But I say unto you which hear, Love your
enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Bless them that curse you, and pray for
them which despitefully use you'' - Luke
6:27.
I was dumbfounded by that verse of the
Scripture. For a while, I couldn't think
straight. If the Lord had not rescued me from
the hands of those people, I probably would be
dead meat by now. How is it then that the Lord
commanded us to do this? - maybe he wants us
to just want him fighting ALL our battles.
Then, I typed the words: ''how to love your
enemies'' into google search engine, and
several sites popped out - as usual. But I
picked this particular one, because after
reading through (it's very long but interesting)
, I got some direction on how to go about it.
And it was a sermon on the topic by the
famous American Baptist Pastor, Martin
Luther King. Now on a second thought, I
decided to share with folks on this board.
Happy reading - if you can!
I found there's an audio recording of the
sermon too - so you can play that back, if you
want to listen to it.
