Richard Weaver earned his living in the mines. He was a Christian and wanted to lead his fellow workers to Christ. One co- worker began to hate Mr. Weaver. This man said, “I’m sick of your constant preaching. I’ve a good mind to smack you in the face!” “Go ahead if it will make you feel better,” replied Weaver. The man immediately struck him a stinging blow. The Christian did not retaliate but turned the other cheek. Again the unbeliever struck him and then walked away, cursing under his breath. The next morning that same man came back to work and Weaver again proclaimed the gospel. This time the man’s heart was opened and he received Christ.
