Who is one person that you just do not like? One person who has been a thorn in your side? Today, do something that will bless them. Don’t tell them you are blessing them because you despise them. Just do something that will encourage them, that God might use to draw them closer to Himself. That is how a Christ follower is supposed to act.
Getting back at someone who has wronged you may seem satisfying, but is never the response of a Christ follower. Love your enemy. Impossible. Perhaps, but not if you involve God in the process. In fact, after Jesus said “Love your enemies”, He immediately said that we should pray for them. It becomes impossible to continue to hate those for whom we are praying.
It is easy to love those who look, act, and think like you do. But, what about people who are very aggressively different? We are told in the Sermon on the Mount that we are to love our enemies. That might seem like a really impossible thing to do, but what a difference it will make today to love on those with whom you disagree. Blessing those who are our enemies is how God will change them.
