But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you Matthew 5:44 (KJV)
Who are your enemies?
Who is hurting you right now?
Who is your nemesis?
Who hates you?
Who is trying to control you?
Who used you?
I’d like to strangle them. How about you?
Now, I have a dilemma. Am I Lord (The Boss) or is Jesus? I have to lay my lordship at his feet and bless instead, love instead. I am to want the best for them and do what I can to help that come about. Talk about counterintuitive.
If I pray, who will change? Me? Them? Both? Neither?
I abdicate, Lord, not because I feel it but because you say so. But I think I need a heart transplant.
