Lung Fu

In the sermon on the mount, Jesus gave a very 'simple' strategy for dealing with people who make life difficult for you. This 'simple' strategy 'simply' says to do the opposite of what comes natural and what the world would say to do. Instead of responding out of hate, selfishness, and/or vengance, Christ says "...Love your enemies, bless those that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." (Matt. 5:44)
