What does my enemy see in me? Is a lack of love on my part a major contributor to our enemy status? Thomas Merton’s statement below has made me think.
“Do not be too quick to assume that your enemy is an enemy of God just because he is your enemy. Perhaps he is your enemy precisely because he can find nothing in you that gives glory to God. Perhaps he fears you because he can find nothing in you of God’s love and God’s kindness and God’s patience and mercy and understanding of the weakness of men.”
– Thomas Merton in Seeds of Contemplation. Christianity Today, Vol. 32, no. 1.
