Repay Evil With Love

Christ has called us to love one another and to repay evil with good. During the civil rights movement, many African Americans, inspired by Martin Luther King Jr., engaged in nonviolent demonstrations, even in the face of profound violence and hate. The famous march across Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, was broadcast into homes all around the nation, and people were forced to reckon with what they were seeing, namely the powerful witness of refusing to “repay evil with evil.” In this short video, civil rights matriarch Amelia Boynton Robinson recalls that day, known as “Bloody Sunday.”

When others slander you, hurt you or insult you, will you love with compassion and truth?
