Judge Me By The Enemies I’ve Made

It is often said,”You can judge the character of a man by his friends.” How true that is.  But there is balancing side to that quote.  You can also judge the courage of a man by the quality of the enemies he makes. 

 

Seem farfetched? Simply consider the  life of Christ. He was fiercely hated by the Pharisees, Sadducees,and the Scribes. All of whom were religious leaders of his day.

 

It was Jesus himself who said to his followers,” if they have hated me, they will also hate you.” 

  Amazing!!  The more we act and speak like Christ, the more religious enemies will  show themselves.

 

 With that promise in mind, here are some awesome quotes that I personally subscribe to:

 * I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made………………………………………………………………… [Franklin D. Roosevelt]

* You shall judge a man by his foes as well as by his friends………………………………………………………..[Joseph Conrad]   

* A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household……………………………………………………..[Jesus Christ]

* So have I now become your enemy for telling you the truth?…………………………………………………….[Apostle Paul]

* Love and pray for your enemies……………………………………………………………………………………………[Jesus Christ]

 * Do you consider your reputation well served? Perhaps its time to choose a better class of enemy.

* Choose your friends carefully. Your enemies will choose you.

* You have enemies ? Good! That means you’ve stood up for something.

    being hated for all the right reasons!…it’s not so bad when you put it in the right perspective,
    At the end of the day you realize it’s not you they actualy hate it’s Christ himself and you were found worthy to be hated as Christ was hated.
    Not because of you, but because of who lives in you.~ thanks Doc this is salve to the wounds of hate!
