This article is based on Proverbs 25
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
Today we see this in some people, that seeing their neighbor in such a situation, they do not provide help because that person who is in need, perhaps abhors. But here the book of proverbs is exhorting us that if a person is in need, we should extend a helping hand even if that same person considers himself our enemy. This teaches us not to be equal to that person, but to be good people and to teach those who hate us to have mercy with others and love them as the word of the Lord says: love our neighbor as ourselves.
