Love Them Anyway
“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked.”
When people hurt us our first reaction is usually to hurt them back. That is the world’s reaction and what the enemy wants us to do. Jesus said to offer up your other cheek when someone strikes you. It’s easy to hate someone that hates you, but God said following him wasn’t going to be easy.
Jesus show me how to love like you do. I want to live out your love and show it to everyone, even those I don’t like. I want to pray for my enemies right now, those that have been rude and mean to me. I don’t always know why people don’t like me or why they judge me but I put them in your hands Lord. Open their hearts and help us build a better relationship, in Jesus name, Amen!
Do you believe in the saying, “an eye for an eye”?
If Jesus didn’t make us pay for our sins then why do we make other people pay?
