"But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those that persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." -Matthew 5:44-45 (NASB)
In Proverbs (24:17-18), we are warned against rejoicing and being glad when our enemies stumble and fall. So what should we do? Jesus tells us to love our enemies and to pray for them. While the world may not understand such an approach, it is what we are called to do. Rather than tearing each other down, we need to love and build each other up. When facing our enemies, God can work miracles, even through us in the face of our enemies!
When your enemies stumble, pray for them and show love!
Thank You for loving me, even when I make mistakes and stumble. Help me to remember to pray for my enemies and show them love, even when they stumble and fall. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
