Day 115 Bless Your Enemies

But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. Matthew 5:44

That's a pretty heady Scripture to carry out. But with God's strength we can live this way. I know there is no way I can do it on my own.

Have you ever had a falling out with someone and then find yourself secretly wishing they would be taught a lesson?

Do you ever say "Serves them right." when a bad thing happens to someone who hurts you?

This isn't God's way. He asks us to bless them and leave the correcting and training to Him.

God gives us one important task. Love. We need to leave the rest up to Him.

Love breaks down the hard stuff and builds success.

God is love. He destroys evil and creates what is good.

Do you want harmony, beauty, joy and happiness? Then use God in your life to grace you with the ability to love all – even your enemies.

God Bless Your Heart,
