Thought for the day....

When reproached and persecuted by wicked men, look beyond them. Spend your wrath on Satan, who is your chief enemy. Men are only his puppets. They may be won to Christ's side and so become your friends at last. Anselm explains it in the following manner, "When the enemy comes riding up in battle, the valiant soldier is not angry with the horse, but with the horseman. He works to kill the rider so that he may possess the horse for his own use." Thus we must do with the wicked.

~From The Christian in Complete Armour by William Gurnall

I thought that was a pretty neat quote. :)

Huh, that's interesting! Kind of reminds me of "love the sinner, hate the sin."

Good thoughts.
