When Jesus said to love our enemies

When Jesus said to love our enemies,
it wasn’t just about winning people over with the love of God,
it wasn’t just about us finding the peace of God in times of trouble,
though it does that too.
It also transforms us. 
When difficult circumstances rip deep into our heart,
Jesus calls us to respond with his own attitude of love and grace,
moulding the deepest parts of our heart into the image of God.

Love narrower
