How to Love Your Enemies
by Jacob Hudgins
“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you”(Luke 6:27-28).
“When they heard these things they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, ‘Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life’”(Acts 11:18).
Peter had been called to task for his visit to Cornelius’ house. “You went to uncircumcised men and ate with them”(Acts 11:3). Peter then tells his story, complete with visions, the intervention of the Holy Spirit, and angels. Only when he had finished his story does Scripture say “they fell silent.” They were wrong. He was right.
Family is a beautiful thing. After the deep ache of loneliness, imagine how excited Adam must have been to see Eve, a companion and helper. Imagine their pure joy at holding little Cain for the first time, then adding a little brother for him. Proud parents and sweet children—the boys grow up, play together, and become close. Then one day, no one can find Abel, Cain becomes a vagabond, and the family is destroyed. What happened? “The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground”(Gen 4:11). Sin destroys families.
