“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Luke 6:28 NIV
This can be one of the hardest things to do. Really Lord? The answer is yes. People will mistreat one another because it is in our human nature to do so. People are going to talk behind your back. People are going to hurt you.
God is watching those that curse us or talk ill of us. God see who is hurting us. He can forget our sins, but He will not forget that. Vengeance belongs to the Lord.
What our goal should be is to love everyone as Jesus loved us, because He loves them too. It can be hard to do, but we should strive to do so. It is part of picking up our own cross. By leading by example, we can win people over.
