Thoughts on Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you,

Love your enemies,

bless them that curse you,

do good to them that hate you,

and pray for them which despitefully use you,

and persecute you;

Has anyone ever been mean to you because you tried to do right?

Ever been called names because you are different

Ever been hated because... I mean just because...

Ever been used?

Ever had lies told about you? Like HORRIBLE lies?

Well, God wants us to forgive them, and not just forgive... He wants us to love them in return! Treat them like they never did anything...

Its hard sometimes. I know. {been there. done that. yeah. lots of times.} But we have to do it, and God gives us the grace to do it!
