Love Our Enemies? Really?

In this scene a little boy is watching VeggieTales "Minnesota Cuke." A re-telling of the bible story about Sampson. His mother is sitting on the couch folding laundry. (Hard to believe but true!) The little boy runs to his mother with a look of incredulity on his face.

Little Boy: Actually, we are supposed to LOVE our enemies!
Mother: Yep
Little Boy: But that's CRAZY! They have spears and could kill us! They are bad guys! Why should we love our enemies? 

Some commandments are harder to obey then others.

*In case you didn't figure it out the little boy was Eli and the mother was me and I really was folding clothes.

I am with Eli. If someone comes near me or my family with a spear I am going to go ninja on his/her butt! Great observation kid!

Sometimes punching someone in the face is the best lesson in love we can teach.

Eli's daddy likes to show his love for his enemies by shooting 120 mm depleted uranium sabot rounds at his enemies while he suppresses them with indirect fire.

Classic Eli.
