Helping Others Prepare for Eternity

Friday – Our Patience toward our enemies
Proverbs 16:32 - Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.
Challenge: This is one of the hardest ones! How do you be self-controlled with your enemy? As this proverb states you are better than a warrior that takes a whole city if you can do this one. God is the only one that can give you the strength to deal with being patient with your enemy. Practice self control with someone that you have a hard time getting along with. You are showing them the love of God. Write about your experience.
