Gospel : Matthew 5:43-48
Love Your Enemies
This book caught my attention and immediately grab it : “Working with Bitches - Identify the 8 types of Office Mean Girls and Rise above workplace nastiness” by Meredith Fuller. I only heard horror stories from colleagues about some types of women in the office until i encountered one!
“If you only love those who love you, what reward is there for that?”; “Pray for those who persecute you!” (Matthew 5: 46, 43) Easier said than done! But really turning frustration and unexpressed anger to praying for a person lifts the burden and makes one see the situation from the lens of Christ .
To love even our enemies is our calling too! Take heed despite the discomfort and trust God! In no time justice will prevail and everything is put back to order.
Today, for whom is God inviting you to show your love?
