how do you deal with your enemies ? who were them? old friends? or new friends? or relatives? is it right to retaliate on anyone you consider an enemy?

Vanities, the bible tells us to bless those who persecute us and to bless them and not to curse them. If they ask for water or food, to give it to them. And no it is not right to retaliate against your enemy for God says that revenge is Hi; He will pay back.

yeah i think so just making some discussions on how people we react on this..however its hard to follow what the bible says if it really happened to you or your loved ones..but maybe constant practising it may do the trick

I dn't really have any enemies, fortunately. Nobody in my circle of friends and aquaintances has ever been horrible, other than a grade school incident, to warrant such strong negative feelings. I have a few family members who I don't get along with, but it seems to be a bigger deal to them than it is to me. My life is full, I have my own nuclear family and they are my focus. I prefer to avoid the troublemakers. It is unfortunate that they are so bent on causing trouble, because I am always waiting for the other show to drop, the next problem they are going to creat. It's not evry nice!

Well today I had to deal with 3 of my enemies. All of them in the same family. I just started working at a new restaurant that just opened yesterday. I'm a hostess so I am the first to see who walks in the door. They came in and the other hostess sat them right behind the hostess stand. Which is what she is supposed to do because that is how the rotations work with the servers. So basically I just ignored them the entire time. Didn't tell them thanks for coming in or anything. They were old friends. I don't really think it's right to retaliate against enemies but I sure do think about it. lol.

I have several enemies. Some I probably don't know about. I really don't see them or run into them, so I guess the best thing to do is avoid them unless you have to be around them. I don't retaliate though, unless I have no other choice. All that seems to do is get you put in jail or in the E.R., or both.
