    Have a Hard Time Loving Your Enemies? Watch This Inspiring Video!

    “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:43-48).

    When people hurt us, our first instinct is to hurt back, shut them out or think ill of them. “Love your enemy” is a popular teaching, but yet it’s so hard to do! Right? Love the one who physically or emotionally hurts us? Really? Why?

    Because it’s what Christ would do. Because in doing so, we become closer to Christ. And who knows…it could bring that enemy closer to Christ and in doing so, hopefully it makes her a friend.

    The following clip is a profound illustration of how difficult it is to love our enemies. Check it out and share your thoughts!

    Ladies, do you find it difficult to love your enemies? Does this video inspire you?

    1. I’m in a situation with having to love your enemies, it can be hard but when we continue to pray for them daily its like things begin to seem different. Christ died for that person too, and still loved us even when we were dead in our sins. It can be such a lesson to learn to be more like Jesus.

    2. Thanks Nicole and TM Gaouette! Love this it’s so sweet and reminding. Thanks for sharing. Really comforts and helps in this tough time. Could u pray for me? Just for comfort and rest, I’m tired and confused sometimes about some things. Thanks:)
