Happy Tuesday Saints.

Luke 6:27 “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, DO GOOD TO THOSE WHO HATE YOU.”

God is good, merciful and kind. And as His children, we have the privilege of being a light in this dark world by showing others what God is like.

Ephesians 4:32 tell us to “BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER, TENDERHEARTED, FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER, AS GOD IN CHRIST FORGAVE YOU.”

One of the main reasons we should love our enemies, do good to those who hate us, and forgive those who’ve wronged us, is to demonstrate the love of God.

It’s not about letting others get away with their troublesome behaviours; it’s about giving them the same mercy that we have received from God.

When we are content, and at peace with God’s love for us, we won’t have a strong desire for revenge. With hearts that are full of God’s love, we can do a lot of GOOD to those who HATE us.

Your love and mercy may not change their behaviour overnight, but it will plant a seed in the heart of your enemy. They will get a glimpse of God’s kindness as expressed through you.

Whatever you do, don’t allow the harsh world around us to harden your heart and make you bitter. Your love for God and your love for others are testimonies to the life-changing power of God’s love in your heart.

DO GOOD to everyone today, including those who may hate you. Live in the freedom of God’s unconditional love.

God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
