2. “What am I suppose to do with the person who constantly criticizes my husband/children?”
3.“Is there a way to handle the person who calls herself my friend and slanders me behind my back?”
4.“How many times do I apologize and forgive when I am not at fault?”
Do any of these questions sound familiar? Do you have a different version of one of these questions? We can only get these answered in one place. Counselors can give suggestions, friends may have ideas, but Jesus clearly knew what this problem felt like and had the answer.
-Luke 6 tells us “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you and pray for those who spitefully use you.”
-Romans 12:20: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Sweet sisters, we know the answer, we just want an easier way. Jesus was very clear that it is not easy to follow Him, but it is always worth it! We must need lots of practice in the area of loving enemies and forgiveness as the opportunities just keep coming.
I am praying for you to be obedient and have victory!"
