Dealing with Our Enemies

        Jesus wants us to love our enemies.  Here are the various degrees of dealing with the enemies.
        (1) We hate them, wishing them the worst.
        (2) We don't like them, trying to forget them.
        (3) We still don't like them; nevertheless, we pray for them knowing that it's the right thing to do.
        (4) We see that God loves them too and no longer dislike them.  In fact, we pity them and ask God to bless them and lead them to salvation.  And we are at peace because the Lord's will has been done.
