Loving Your Enemies


"But I [Jesus] say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you." - Matthew 5:44 (NKJV).


Bob Lewis relates the story of a Christian woman "who owned two prize-winning chickens. One  afternoon, the chickens worked their way out of her yard and into her neighbor's garden. The neighbor, known for his hot temper, captured both birds, wrung their necks and then threw their lifeless carcasses across the fence into the Christian's yard.


"The woman was understandably hurt and considered giving her neighbor a piece of her mind. Instead, she took the chickens home and prepared two chicken pot pies.  Whereupon she took one to her neighbor and then apologized for not being more watchful of her chickens. The man was speechless. The chicken pot pie coupled with an apology filled him with such a sense of burning shame that his whole life began to change."


Need I say more?


Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, I find it real easy to love those who are lovable but don't know how to love my enemies and those who would mistreat me.  Please help me to grow in love so that I will always be 'as Christ' to everyone—friend or foe. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.  Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."


Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
