“Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
It is easy for us to love those who are good to us, or those who we like, but those who are unkind to us or those who are difficult to deal with are the challenges thrown at us by Jesus: to love them so we can be perfect like our Father.
He didn’t choose who He’ll love, He loved us all, no discrimination, no choosing, no biases, even though we have hurt Him so many times. These are I guess the most difficult commandments....to rise above our hurts and learn to forgive.
Dear Lord, teach us, and guide us that we may be kept on track in our aspiration to be perfect and holy like you.
