Love your enemies

“But I say to you who hear, 
Love your enemies
do good to those who hate you,
 bless those who curse you, 
pray for those who abuse you.
 To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also
and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 
Give to everyone who begs from you
from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back.
 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

“If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? 
For even sinners love those who love them.
And if you do good to those who do good to you
what benefit is that to you? 
For even sinners do the same.
 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you?
Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 
But love your enemies, and do good,
 and lend, expecting nothing in return, 
and your reward will be great,
 andyou will be sons of the Most High,
 for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.

*Lord knows I needed to find this scripture.
  What I need to do is BRAND this into my brain!
I think writing it and sticking it on the fridge will be a start.

And if anyone has tips on loving their enemies, let me know! :)

  1. I've recently begun to ask the Lord to allow me to see them as He does and in turn teach me to love them with His love and not the love of the world. It is still a work in progress, as i'm sure it will always be, but it's a start:)
