Ancient Truths for Modern Times

Good morning!

1 Peter 3:9

9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

We are not just called to love our brothers and sisters in Christ, but we are also called to LOVE OUR ENEMIES. Oh, what a hard pill to swallow! It is much too natural for us to hate our enemies instead of to show them kindness, and much to natural for us to seek revenge against them! As God's children we are not only expected to love our enemies, but we are told we will receive a blessing from doing so! What is that blessing you might ask? The growing of love in our heart and the knowledge that we have served God the way Christ did!

With Love and Hope,
