Who are enemies? No one is trying to persecute me, but there are people in my life who cause me to hurt. Enemies can mean those who repeatedly go against my desires- in dramatic or casual form. Enemies include my tweenage daughter, my stubborn mother, my cranky neighbor. Enemies include the stranger in the store without a mask or the capitol rioter hoping to overthrow the election. Enemies include the difficult student. What does Jesus say? Greet them. Do practical acts of helpfulness in ordinary ways. Want good for them and express this want in prayer. Loving our enemies is not natural; we need the grace of God and the Holy Spirit to do so. Let’s pray.
