You have heard people say, “Love your neighbours & hate your enemies.” But I tell you to love your enemies & pray for anyone who mistreats you’ ‘Mat 5:44 .. Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you & pray for those who despite-fully use you & persecute you,’
GNT – Have you ever met people who really do the above? People who say it, mean it and do it. Not begrudgingly, not unwillingly but willingly, cheerfully and thoughtfully. Find these people and you will find people who Love God more than they Love themselves, people who’s whole existence is to please our Lord Jesus Christ; generally they are Christians of a mature age, Christians who have experienced the highs and lows of life, who have experience poverty and prosperity, who have been there, done that and call it all a wast of time because they were quick to anger, slow to forgive. These are the people who follow Jesus and do what He did, you will know them by their works.
