“Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” These words make me tremble and full with fear. They at times seem so impossible, but they aren’t. When we are able to do this, all of us are changed.
I wonder what Jeremiah thought of these words. In our text from Jeremiah 20:7-13, we know that Jeremiah trusted in the Lord. “Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and they will not prevail.” The Lord sees the heart and the mind.
What does the Lord see of our hearts and minds? I hope that the Lord sees me doing my best “to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God.” I know that there are days that I’ll fail at this. But more days than not, I want to be seen as one of Jesus children who continually tries to shower love on all Gods people.
God loved us so much God sent Gods one and only son into the world for us.
