Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, . . . So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Mt_5:43-48
When Love becomes the very center and entire reason for our existence, beloved, we can be just like the saints who died praying for their persecutors. We can be just like Jesus!
This is the perfection of our Heavenly Father!
May He bless you with persistence in this discipline!
