By Joe Barnett Batsell Barrett Baxter was riding in a plane beside a blind businessman. He was so impressed with the man's friendliness that he couldn't refrain from asking how he lost his sight. "A competitor of mine threw acid on my face," was the reply.
"Do you know who was behind it?" Baxter asked "Yes, but I could not prove it in court" answered the blind man.
"Don't you feel a terrible resentment?" questioned Baxter.
"Oh, I did for years, but it dawned on me that I was doing myself the real injmH," said the man. "1 forgave him and have actually done him some favors in recent years." He went on to tell how his attitude toward an enemy had changed his entire life.
He did exactly what the Lord advises: "...If thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink...be not overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good" (Rom. 12:20-21, of. Prey. 25:21). Joe Barnett Family Newsletter
