Luke 6:27-37, Matthew 18:21-35

With all of the recent events in the world, many people have started spreading “stop the hate” messages across social media. However, how are we to stop the hate in the world when we cannot stop the hate in our own personal lives? The hatred we have towards exes, family members who have mistreated us, friends who have disagreed with us, bosses, etc. can become consuming. So many of us are quick to think that we are right and if someone disagrees, they are obviously in the wrong. We hold onto this thinking, allowing the anger and the hatred to grow in our hearts. But God has called us to love one another, regardless. “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. ‘Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.” (Luke 6:27-29) When was the last time you forgave an enemy?? God is good 😉
