Compassionate Nonresistance

When in battle with evil, vindication seems the immediate quick solution.

There is a better reaction.

‘By not resisting to evil’ will surprise the adversary and extinguish its evil intent solely  by an outpouring of compassion and forgiveness.

That’s called ‘turning the other cheek.’

***

“In the blink of an eye everything can change,

So, forgive often and love with all your heart.

You may never know when you may not have that chance again.”
