Loving Our Enemies

Anne Crumpler

Reflect on Matthew 5:43–48. What images come to mind as you read? Why does Jesus tell us to love our enemies?

PRAY: Loving God: you have commanded us to love our enemies and to do good to those who hate us. Let us never be content to love only those who love us. Instead, give us strength to reach out in love and peace to all of your children; in Jesus’ name. Amen.
