When a man’s ways please the Lord, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.—Prov. 16:7.
I must see that my ways please the Lord. Even then I shall have enemies; and, perhaps all the more certainly because I endeavored to do that which is right. But what a promise this is! The Lord will make the wrath of men to praise Him, and abate it so that it shall not distress me. When I meet death, who is called the last enemy, I pray that I may be at peace. Only let my great care be to please the Lord in all things.
