-Proverbs 25:21-22 (NASB)
Proverbs (25:21-22) reminds us that God will reward us for taking care of our enemies or those that challenge us, for feeding them and giving them water to drink. While we may not have to literally feed and water our enemies, we may have to react in a way that is not in our human nature.
We need to remember that God's nature is to love. We are saved from our sins because of God's never ending love. When we are faced with individuals that may be viewed as "enemies" or challenges, we must call on God to give us the strength to react in His nature of love instead of our human nature.
Have an enemy? Call on God to give you the strength to react as He would in His loving nature.
Thank You for Your Salvation and allowing me to experience Your love and forgiveness. Help me to act as You would want me to when I am faced with individuals that challenge me. Help me to move beyond any past wrongs in order to show Your love. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
