To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 22–24 on January 30, In the year of our Lord 2019

When our enemy needs something our natural tendency is to ignore him, but the Bible teaches us otherwise,
“If you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying under its burden, and you would refrain from helping it, you shall surely help him with it” (Exodus 23.4–5).
Have you had the concept that the Old Testament did not teach doing good to your enemy? If so, can you see now that it did?
- Have you helped your enemy?
- Has an enemy helped you?
