If your enemies are hungry, give them food to eat.
If they are thirsty, give them water to drink. ~ Proverbs 25:21 (NLT)
Honestly, Father, the thought of tending to needs of my enemies is a struggle for me. Rather than offering care to one who opposes me, as You would, I tend to rejoice in what I consider their judgement. Instead of looking with compassionate eyes, I sometimes view their situation through eyes of condemnation. My hurt, disillusionment, and frustration cloud my heart's vision. I allow my emotions to be my filter, not You. This is difficult to admit, but it is he truth. The thing is, that's not how I want to live. Denying forgiveness and executing judgement eats away at me and in no way honors You. I fight it, Father! It seems when I fight it, though, I lose. I need You to fight it for and through me. May I see with Your eyes, feel with Your heart, love with Your love. Enemy or friend ~ it shouldn't make a difference. You've spoken and I want to harken. Please live THROUGH me in every and all situations.
In Jesus' Name, Amen…
