A friend’s “enemy”—my enemy, too?
Jesus calls for his followers to “love ye your enemies, and do good” (Luke 6:35). It’s accepted by many that it’s good to strive to love and forgive people behaving uncharitably toward you. But what if someone becomes the “enemy” of your friend?
Some time ago, I provided prayerful support and quiet encouragement to a close friend as he dealt with the ugly fallout from a relationship with a mutual acquaintance who had hurt him deeply. My friend had been confiding in me as the events unfolded, and it felt as if I could only watch from the sidelines as the “train wreck” happened.
