He who angers you conquers you.
~ Elizabeth Kenny
Would you rather be a victim or a victor?
If a victor, then don’t let another’s actions fill you with anger. Pride, ego, and self-righteousness are the enemies to fend off and defeat. They swell their victim with fury and catapult its mind into a state of weakness, unwise action and vulnerability.
In a timeless article titled “Love your enemies,” Mary Baker Eddy wrote,
“Who is thine enemy that thou shouldst love him? Is it a creature or a thing outside thine own creation?…
“Simply count your enemy to be that which defiles, defaces, and dethrones the Christ-image that you should reflect.” Miscellaneous Writings, page 8
Nobody can rob you of reflecting Christ’s image!
