Why Remember God? Enemies Go Away!

In the previous post, I discussed that God is limitless. One of the most beautiful things I learned from the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is that by remembering God, your enemies will become your friends. He resides within his creation. If you remember God, and wish for your enemies to become friends, through his unfathomable ways, God can make it happen.
