It is easy to be nice to those that are nice to us, but the challenge comes when we need to be nice to those that are not always nice. In society, it is often the norm to repay good with good and insult with insult. Jesus challenges us to live above the norm. We are called to love everyone. We are to do good in the name of God, regardless of what has been presented to us.
Do good to everyone, no matter what they do to you!
Thank You for being a good and gracious God. Help me to follow Your example so that I can be loving and good, even when society says otherwise. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
