Love them?

Matthew 5:43-48

Do you want to get rid of your enemies?  Pray for them.

You just can’t pray for someone and hate them at the same time.

The current President seems to bring out the worst in so many people.

He tosses insults like some of us toss frisbees!

Many want to respond in kind, but today’s verses expect otherwise.

This does NOT mean that we condone evil behavior.  What’s wrong is wrong no matter who is doing it.  We must separate them from the wrongs they are doing and see them as God’s creation.  He made those folks!

I cannot love my enemies unless I am filled with God.  I don’t have the natural capability to do it.

When I am frustrated with the behavior of others, I need to glance behind their behavior at them and see them as God’s creation.
