If God can forgive, redeem, and transform me, I must also believe that God can work such wonders with anyone. Love of enemies is seeing one's oppressors through the prism of the reign of God — not only as they are now but also as they can be: transformed by the power of God.

To Practice This Thought:
Envision an enemy -- perhaps someone who is good at pushing all your buttons -- as a candidate, like you, for transformation.
