At first I thought I would have a hard time coming up with a topic being that it’s an exciting week for me. Black Panther comes out this Friday, making progress with my children’s book, and going to have a romantic time at the ortho’s office on V-day, yayy me! Finally (like a few seconds ago) the topic came to me, Love Your Enemies.
It’s easy to love people that you get along with. The ones that support, encourage, and strengthen you . Oh what’s not to love about that? Sure there’s moments where you can’t stand them but it’s only temporary because you both love each other unconditionally. I struggled with loving my enemies. It was bad enough I held grudges that could last from a few days to years but my enemies were unforgiven for life. I couldn’t avoid it , God wouldn’t let me , even now if /when I try. So what do I do ? How do I learn to love my enemies? Through pep talks (notes I take from church service) and scriptures:
“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you”- Luke 6:27
“And whenever you stand praying, forgive ,if you have Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses”-Mark 11:25
“If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.”-Proverbs 25:21-22
So for this valentine’s day I challenge you to serve your enemy with kindness whether it’s directly or indirectly with prayer , they deserve it and will appreciate you.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!
