Memory Verse
“But I say to you, love your 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).
Words Of Wisdom
God’s desire for all of His children is for them to not only refrain
from hating others but to show love to them as well. The
Pharisees of Jesus’ day were the ones who taught people to love
their neighbors (= Jews) and to hate their enemies (= non-Jews).
But they didn’t get this from the Bible but from their own
corrupt minds. Jesus taught us to love (treat others as He would)
both our neighbors AND our enemies. Since God loves His
enemies, we should as well. If we don’t, we really aren’t any
better than the dregs of society.
