Love your enemies

…love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.  Luke 6:27b-28

It is much easier to make certain people antagonists in the stories we live than it is to love them. But our stories really have only one Enemy. Getting us to hurt one another and to view one another as villains is just another of his divisive tactics. Love is the plot twist, the unexpected response, especially if we somehow find ourselves cast as villain in another person’s story. Love changes the story.

Lord, help me to love. Everyone.
