Tillotson: dealing with other's faults

Friday, June 30, 2017
    [Jesus:] “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you...”
    —Luke 6:27 (ESV)
    He is not a good Christian, that is not heartily sorry for the faults even of his greatest enemies; and, if he will be so, he will [lay them bare] no further than is necessary to some good end.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. III, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon XLII, p. 268 (see the book)
    See also Luke 6:27; Ex. 23:4-5; Matt. 5:11,43-45; Luke 6:22,35; 23:34; Rom. 12:17-18; Gal. 6:10; Eph. 4:31; Tit. 3:2; 1 Thess. 5:15; Jas. 4:11; 1 Pet. 2:1; 3:10; 3 John 1:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grow pity in my heart for my enemies and Yours.
