Loving your enemy is difficult when you’re in your 20s. When you’re in the third grade it’s a great way to get a black eye. I don’t have an alternative you should tell your kids, just a story about a friend that wet his pants while skiing and the advice his mother gave him.
In Marlboro, Massachusetts there is a small hill called “Jericho” that we used to ski on when were kids. One day in the third grade, my friend couldn’t make it back to the bathroom in time and peed in his snowpants. Someone found out and proceeded to tell everyone at school. When he told his mom how mad and hurt he was, this is the Christian advice she gave him:
“Go in to school tomorrow and tell everyone that you’re human, you make mistakes.”
Instead he climbed to the top of a skinny tree in his backyard and refused to come down for a few hours.
