Enemy Love – Dietrich Bonhoeffer


300px-Pastor_BonhoefferBy our enemies Jesus means those who are quite intractable and utterly unresponsive to our love, who forgive us nothing when we forgive them all, who requite our love with hatred and our service with derision.  Love asks nothing in return, but seeks those who need it.  And who needs our love more than those who are consumed with hatred and are utterly devoid of love? – Dietrich BonhoefferThe Cost of Discipleship H/T Third Way Cafe
