Jesus said “Love your enemy—do good to those who hate you, bless those who cures you, pray for those who mistreat you” (Luke 6:27)
He didn’t say “feel good” about people who hate you. Do. Others—enemies included—are the recipients of our good deeds, not as a reward, but because when we were His enemies, God treated us the same way.
Aren’t you glad. Now bless your enemy.
Little things aren’t so small in a war…
“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of. An apparently trivial indulgence in lust or anger today is the loss of a ridge or railway line or bridgehead from which the Enemy may launch an attack otherwise impossible.” —C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
Small things go further than we know. Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Small act, huge effect.
Plant the seeds of victory. Ruin the Enemy’s day.
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
“Love your enemy…”
“Do good to those who hate you…”
“Love one another as I have loved you.”
“If you Love Me, you will obey what I command.”
There’s your day. And the rest of your life.
