Loving Your Enemies

Loving Your Enemies

A forgiving mother hugs her daughter

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.—Matthew 5:44 NIV

If you struggle with this verse, you are not alone. God asks you to forgive as He forgives, to love as He loves. Every conflict is a chance to become a peaceful, forgiving person. Every dispute is an opportunity to make things better, to feel God’s love flow through you.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, help me to reflect Your patience and kindness in my relationships. Help me bring the light of Your love into the lives of those around me.
