"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you......."
Why? Because God has been doing it from the beginning of time.......way before you and your personal feelings and opinions. Who are we to feel and act as though we are greater or better than the Greatest and Best? Loving unconditionally is doable! Not being ignorant, is doable! Not being uneducated, is doable! Not being racist, is doable! Not being a criminal, is doable! Not being a liar, is doable! Not being unfaithful is doable! Not being evil, is doable!! Not being vengeful, is doable! Not being a fool, is doable! Long story short, everything you are and believe is a choice, made by you and only you. Are you a decent human being? Are you not? Again, it's a choice, made by you and only you!!
This world is the way it is by choice. We've accepted, settled, and allowed all sorts stuff that falls less than and beneath what God initially intended for us. We chose the tasting of the forbidden over God. We chose a mortal king over an Eternal God, Creator of an entire universe! In so many countries and ventures and explorations, we've chosen theft, rape, murder, war, and oppression over peaceful coexistence of cultures, religions, and races. Tell me we haven't. The evil intent of one has spoiled the entire bunch of us, mankind. Unfortunately, we live in a world divided in two and only two. Either your chosen lifestyle mimics that of our Creator, God, or it reflects the actions and ways of the deceiver and evil one, Satan. There is no in between. There is no fence to straddle. There is no gray area, as some people would have you to believe.
Yet, there is ALWAYS hope. There is ALWAYS better to be had!! LOVE!!
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 -
LOVE IS DOABLE!!
Those who have ears, let them hear.......
