Love Your Enemies

"You're familiar with the old written law: 'Love your friend,'
and its unwritten companion: 'Hate your enemy.'

I'm challenging that. I'm telling you to love your enemies.
Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time,
respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves,
your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best
- the sun to warm and the rain to nourish - to everyone, regardless:
the good and bad, the nice and nasty.
If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that.
If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal?
Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that.

"In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects.
Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity.
Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you."
Matthew 5:43-48

Have a nice day,
