Loving your enemies

Someone oppressed you.
Someone called you a liar.
Someone slapped you in the face.
Someone was angry to you.
Someone has been your enemy.

Once in our lifetime, we came across difficult people. People who maybe a polar opposite. People who maybe has a very similar personality. These people have hurt us in different ways. Some of them became our enemies.

My week’s devotional is all about “loving your enemies.” And so many questions boggled my mind. How can I love my enemy? They became an enemy for a reason. What good will it do to me? I am not a masochist to endure them.

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

We are different in our own way. We all have positive and negative attitudes. People may judge us whatever we do. But we should always remember this: God’s children are set apart, meaning, we are to love and not hate, because we are more than and beyond this world. When the world hates, we love. When the world hold grudges, we forgive. That’s how God’s children work… All with love! 🙂
