"Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin which I had lost.' Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

Philippians 4:8
And the opposite side of that coin:
"There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers." --- Proverbs 6:16-19 (ESV)

Psalm 147
10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
11 the LORD delights in those who fear him,
    who put their hope in his unfailing love.

that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to inquire in his temple."

And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

O.K. Most know I enjoy a lot of what C.S. has written. And he said something rather helpful about Jesus' command to "love your enemies."

He said it's not having affection towards our enemies, but simply wishing them well. That they may someday, in this world, or another, undergo a radical divine change in heart. (my paraphrase)

So, it's not as hard to love my enemy as I thought.
"At present we're on the wrong side of the door. But all the pages of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so." ~ C.S. Lewis

Saint Paul's Letter to the Philippians 4:8 & 9 wrote: Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.
