Silence is Golden

As I have reflected on “loving my enemies,”  in Luke 6:35, it has come to my attention that sometimes, silence is golden.  I do know the passage also moves on to say that we should do good to our enemies……but what about MY rights!?

The lovely example that comes to mind for me is Jesus, as he was on trial.  Much of the time, he simply remained silent.  He did not lash out to set everyone “straight.”

Sometimes the answer for being “kind” to my enemies is quietude!
