JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
My teaching to you is that you need to keep your heart open toward others. You must never allow your own spirit to be clouded by hatred or sustained anger because that ends up poisoning you rather than harming the one you’re angry with. You are to act toward others in a way that you would have them act toward you.
If a person is trying to discredit you, you do not want to discredit them back—that would dirty your heart—but you most certainly want to speak truth. If they are acting from a place of hatred, you are doing them a favor by speaking truth: You are loving them enough to pull them away from whatever demon (greed, ambition, selfishness) has them in its grasp. If the truth has the side effect of defending you from their accusations, so be it. By drawing a line and speaking truth, you are helping your enemy and so your heart remains pure…and you remain in Me.
Do you have two minutes? Send Me a beautiful, joyous wave of love. Feel your spirit lifted by the Holy Spirit and then bring your enemy to mind and heart. Feel the sadness and desperation that underlies his actions. Let your heart warm in caring for him. Imagine sending him a wave of loving compassion. Once you feel confident of having a pure and open heart toward your enemy, you can speak truth without fear.
“For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
