Thought Provokers for Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017

resist not evildoer

These Thought Provokers may help you meditate the Gospel for this Sunday (Matthew 5:38-48)

If we could read the secret history of our enemies,
we should find in each man’s life
sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If I am even with my enemy, the debt is paid;
but if I forgive him, I oblige him for ever.

William Penn

* * * * * * * * * *

I choose my friends for their good looks,
my acquaintances for their good characters,
and my enemies for their intellects.
A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.

Oscar Wilde

* * * * * * * * * *

The true and noble way to kill a foe,
Is not to kill him. You, with kindness, may
So change him, that he shall cease to be so,
And then he’s slain.

Emile Chartier

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors,
and also to love our enemies;
probably because they are generally the same people.

G.K. Chesterton
