The best way to get rid of enemies is turn them into friends.
Romans12.21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans13.8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
Lev.19.18 You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
Matthew equates the whole Bible to loving both God and your neighbor.
Matt27.37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
This season think of everything good that anyone has done for you. Speak tenderly, think lovingly, and pray sincerely for each person around you and your life.
