Day 229 of 365 Days with God

To harbor no envy, no anger, no resentment against an offender is still not to have charity for him. It is possible, without any charity, to  avoid rendering evil for evil. But to render, spontaneously, good for  evil – such belongs to a perfect spiritual love.

—  St. Maximus the Confessor
