FILL THE CUPBy: Darrelyn L. Tutt
If your enemy is hungry,You must give him food to eat;If your enemy is thirsty,You are not to make retreat.
It is given you to fill him,It is given you to love;If you haven’t it within you,God will give it from above.
He will match the most unlovely,With a correlating grace;He will give you strength to suffer,One you’d choose to never face.
He will strengthen, He will meet you,At the crux of every ill;Those who’ve done a wrong against you,You’re to love them … even still.
God will recompense the evil,He, alone, decide the case;You must simply offer mercy,Trusting God to give you grace.
Feed the enemy that’s hungry,Fill the cup that’s given you;Choose to overcome an evil,Trusting God for what He’ll do.-----“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."Romans 12:20-21
