I was standing in line with a young man from church and was talking about the daily troubles of getting kicked by another kids. As we pondered his reaction to the situation, we ran down the list of what he should do?
…tell his mom
I piped up what is there was another way?
his glance towards me turned into what do you mean another way?
well sure you could pursue all of those other ways but Jesus said there is another way?
Jesus said “love your enemies?
He said, that’s hard!
I laughed and said yep, that’s why we need to pray and ask for help.
