Your own worse enemy

your own worst enemy 

Imagine if you have to be in court with a friend who has dragged you into something.  If you tell the truth, your friend will be punished and if you don’t, you have messed with God.

“A politician knows that his friends are not always his allies, and that his adversaries are not always his enemies.”  — Richard Nixon

It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the Lord, you are safe.

By his blood we are now put right with God; how much more, then, will we be saved by him from God’s anger!  We were God’s enemies, but he made us his friends through the death of his Son. Now that we are God’s friends, how much more will we be saved by Christ’s life!  But that is not all; we rejoice because of what God has done through our Lord Jesus Christ, who has now made us God’s friends.  –  Romans 5:9-11

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.  – attributed to Churchill (cited in Langworth, Churchill: In His Own Words)
