“But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.” (Luke 6:27) Jesus taught us to love everyone, even those who might not love us. If we are honest, we often barely listen to those we disagree with, much less love our enemies. Jesus must be sad at how hard our hearts have become.
Loving Lord, remind us of what the commandment means. Let us listen to those we have issues with to honestly hear their position, and to respond in love even if we don’t agree. May we be Your body on earth and show the world how we are to treat one another. Let Your peace be with us. Amen.
