Love Your Enemies

"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."
Luke 6:27-28

Therefore, according to 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,

Be patient with your enemies. Be kind to your enemies. Do not envy your enemies. Do not boast against your enemies. Humble yourself before your enemies. Do not be rude to your enemies. Do not delight in the evil of your enemies but rejoice with their truth. Always protect your enemies. Always trust your enemies. Always be hopeful for your enemies. Always persevere with your enemies. Never fail your enemies.

Who is your enemy? Are liberals your enemy? Are Muslim extremists your enemy? Are homosexual activists your enemy? Is corporate America your enemy? Is Fox News your enemy? Are evolutionary scientists your enemy? Are prosperity preachers your enemy? The list goes on...

Do you love them? Really??

I like it, Ken! Those are hard questions that I will need to look hard at and answer for myself.

The big question for me though is: Do I need to love Fox News AND MSNBC??!!
