“You have heard the law that says, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just as the unjust alike.”
We all know that one of the hardest things to do is to love someone who doesn’t love you back, or to love someone who continually shows acts of hatred toward you. But we must understand that we have been made in the image of God, therefore we are not justified by treating people in anyway except with love. Why? Because it’s exactly how our Father continues to treat us, even though we are constantly showing acts of hatred toward Him through our sins.
So the next time someone has you feeling a certain way (negative) just begin to pray for them. Show love toward them, simply because our Father asked us too, and we know He does it for us even though we do not deserve it.
