DO GOOD TO THEM
We are reminded by the Apostle Paul that Jesus died for us while we were still ungodly, wicked sinners who were His natural enemies (Rom 5:6-10), so we should do nothing less than to do good to those who hate us and do bad to us. We are not to take revenge, but rather, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matt 5:44). There is nothing about loving them if they deserve it, because none of us do. We’re simply told to do our enemies good, even if they treat us badly.
