Title: Love your enemies
Bible verse: Matthew 5: 44–45
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Message: God loves all human beings and therefore expects us to even love our enemies.
- The evil that we suffer does not prevent us from faithfully following the Lord.
- We pray for those who are not well-disposed towards us, and desire to contribute to their salvation.
- God grants grace to those who are determined to do His will.
