Quick Encouragement #31

  Sometimes it's easy to respond to hate with hate. However, that's not at all what Jesus would have us do. He wants us to love our enemies and show them forgiveness and compassion. Think back with me to when Jesus was hanging on the cross. The people were showing more than hate to Him. They were mercilessly beating Him. But did He hate them right back? No. He asked His Father to forgive them. To forgive us. He showed them mercy, grace, compassion, love. That's how He wants us to act too!
