I don’t know if Julio Diaz is a Christ-follower or not, but he behaved as though he was following Christ in this article. There are a couple things I find remarkable about this story.
First Julio’s actions. He really was “doing good to … them which spitefully” used him.
And second, that NPR actually agrees that this was the right thing to do. They titled the article: A Victim Treats His Mugger Right. Is this the first time that NPR actually agreed with Jesus? 😉
But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you; ~Jesus
