Jesus said, “But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Matthew 5:44 We will encounter difficult people in our lives, some one whom we will need to set limits. But to give in to the temptation to undermine or hurt them in any way is not God’s way. Instead, we should pray for them, show consideration, look out for their best interests, and emphasize the positive. This may result in changing an enemy into a friend. Not everyone will respond positively to us, but we can pray and plan for a more harmonious relationship What difficult person can you start befriending? Lord, some people in my life are difficult to love. I am tempted not even to try to care. But you showed love to me even when I was your enemy. Please direct me into ways to love with Your power and grace. Thank you Jesus. Have a wonderful day.
