Love Your Enemies.
What then does it mean to love your enemies?
If my enemy is not my enemy but fear.
My enemy's motivation is fear.
To love them thus means to liberate them from the power of their fears.
This can be done by asking, "What are you so afraid of?"
They may think about it and come up with fear.
Otherwise we can pray for them to recognize and be released from their fears.
This is a blessing.
It may not be immediately apparent what fear lies beneath your enemy's hostility.
But fear it will be.
So then, when we see that the source of our enemies' attacks is fear, we can begin to love our enemies.
