Enemies: Why should we Love them?

In Romans 12:20-21, we are instructed to feed our enemies if they are hungry, give them something to drink if they are thirsty. We should not be like them, instead we should treat them with kindness.

How many of us would rather fight fire with fire 🔥? For many of us, that is probably our first instinct. However, that does not make it right. Being unkind toward others only makes them dislike us more and fuels their emotions against us.

It is better to treat others with kindness no matter how they treat us. Goodness and kindness always generates goodness and kindness. Just like they old saying “ Garbage in, Garbage out.” Positivity brings about positive outcomes. In other words, they best way to turn an enemy towards friendship is to shower them with love and kindness.

“Love you enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”

Matthew 5:44 NIV (New International Version)

We are commanded by God to love ❤️ our enemies. We are instructed to follow His example in loving those who seek to do us harm. Sometimes it is not easy to love someone, but that doesn’t mean we should treat them badly. We need to treat everyone, friend or foe, with love, respect, and kindness. By doing so, we are illustrating God’s love ❤️ and goodness towards them. It is by our example they’ll become aware of God’s love. It is God’s love that will lead them towards being kind to others, even you.

God bless. Be kind to all. Love everyone. God loves you! I appreciate y’all.
