There was a German Village where a man and his wife learned to worship on the Sabbath. The rest of the village didn’t like it. There was pressure to conform. The men of the village came and tore the roof off of their house. The man and his wife heard their neighbors up on the roof and wondered what to do. They thought of Romans 12 where it says, “If your enemy is hungry feed him.” They made them lunch. When the men came down off the roof they were invited to sit down for lunch. The man and his wife served them graciously. After lunch, without anything being said, the men went back up and reroofed their house.
