Read: Matthew 5:38-48
Think: How good are you at “loving those who love you?” How good are you at loving your enemies? What would it look like for you to offer to serve someone who makes your blood boil? How would your love for your enemies set you apart and make people ask questions about your faith? How did Jesus love His enemies on His way to the cross?
Pray: God, give me a love for my enemies today that makes you famous.
Apply: Make a commitment not to gossip about anyone today. Every time someone annoys you or you come across your enemy today, pray for them and look for a practical way to serve them or show them you care. If they don’t receive it, that’s not your problem. Smile, pray for them, and move on.
