“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

  • Matthew 5:43-48

It seems difficult a task but it is doable. It though requires the grace of God to love your enemies…but His grace is sufficient. Let us love all our neighbours – enemies and friends alike – just as Christ did and does….
