Forgive Your Enemies…

Jesus Christ prayed for his persecutors thus, “Lord forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

The poet Thiruvalluvar expressed the same sentiment in chaste Tamil when he wrote, “The earth sustains even those who dig into her. To bear with those who slander us is the crown of virtue.”

The Prophet Muhammed said, “Forgive him who wrongs you; join him who cuts you off; do good to him who does evil to you, and speak the truth although it be against yourself.”

I am not Jesus Christ or any other holy person. I am just an ordinary man. I am sometimes inclined to follow the advice of John F Kennedy who said, “Forgive your enemies, but don’t forget their names.”
