“Love your enemies” is a call to be kind-frontational

When people are blunt
And confront
Without kindness
It’s an affront.
Keep kindness up front.

Some people harden their heart into a heavily fortified fort and live continually in their confront zone. Get out of your confront zone. Learn to kind-front people. Kind-frontation occurs when kindness is allowed to flow from human heart to human heart.

Try not to shy away from kind-frontation. Go ahead and spread kindness wherever you go. Kind-frontation is willing to listen to the other side of the story.

When people are confrontational, respond by being kind-frontational. Life goes better if instead of confronting people you kind-front them–speaking the truth with kindness. When people are on the track to confrontation, kindness is an escape route.

Kind-front life. Keep your heart and mind focused on being kind to all. When you’re involved in a confrontation, remember that kindness is a spiritual weapon with the power to change people’s hearts.

No matter how strongly we confront it and rail against it, reality doesn’t change. Truth is never inconsistent. People who are secure in their beliefs have no need to be hostile when confronted.

It usually works better to kind-front life heart-on than to confront it head-on. When confrontation begins to escalate, shift to kind-frontation. The darkness in a person begins to dissipate when it’s persistently kind-fronted.

Approving of people’s wrongdoing abandons them to its captivity. That isn’t kind-frontation.

“Love your enemies” is a call to be kind-frontational. Love isn’t approval. It knows how to confront wrongdoing with humility and kindness.
