Love Your Enemies, part 2
Last time, we considered the rule—love your enemies—and the ways Jesus tells us to do that. We love our enemies by doing good to those who hate us, blessing them that curse us, praying for those who mistreat us, turning the other cheek to those who slap us, giving generously to those who ask us, doing unto others as we would want them to do unto us, showing mercy, refusing to be judgmental, and forgiving. God has been merciful to us, and we must be merciful to others. When we love this way, we demonstrate that we are truly the children of God.
