The Golden Rule of Love

It's a temptation to feel hostile toward someone who has deceived or injured us. In fact can't hostility be a defense of sorts?

To human sense such an argument is plausible; but Christ Jesus taught differently. He proved that mankind's only true defense from evil is found in God, good. Jesus supplied us with the Golden Rule for living: "All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." He also said, "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven." Matt. 7:12; 5:44, 45.
