THE Promise - Genesis 3:15 (continued)

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."

Jesus crushed the serpent's head when he rose from the dead. And he continues to crush the serpent's head every time we his people choose God's way instead of our own. 

At Christmas the serpent is relentless in tempting us to make wrong choices.  When our feelings have been hurt, we want to strike back instead of turning the other cheek or offering to walk the second mile. Yet we know that, as Christians, we need to imitate Christ.

What are some practical ways you've discovered to overcome evil with good? Do you continue to send Christmas cards to those who have wounded you? Invite them to dinner? Pray for them? What?
