Advisory: Be careful of what you read on social media. The algorithms used by these platforms have no regard for Biblical truth. They target your emotions to keep you engaged on their site so their advertisers can drop more ads. These platforms exist to enrich their stockholders. Consider God’s promise to Believers in James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

Matthew 5:43-45 (NIV) 43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is continuing to describe Kingdom thinking. In the 5 corrections of contemporary expressions of that day, one of the most radical is in our verses for today. If you have not recognized that you are poor in spirit, this might help you see the truth. “Love your enemies.” The society was saying to love your neighbor and hate your enemy. Jesus would later redefine what a neighbor is. He will include anyone that we run into that has a need. Such is Jesus’ value of human life.

When you find someone working to destroy you in repayment for your kindness, you will find out whether or not you have adopted Kingdom thinking. Man doesn’t have the ability to love and pray for his enemy. It just isn’t in him. We can teach it, but when it comes down to personal experience, personal loss and pain, it breaks down into gut reaction. Their stinging words won’t stop playing in our mind. We dwell on how we can respond in a way that will wound them and damage their credibility. That is the way of the flesh.

If we are to be like our heavenly Father, we must learn to sow good into lives that are loving as well as those that are captured by sin. Heavenly thinking looks beyond the physical and sees the pain and spiritual bondage of the one who is trying to harm us. Hurting people hurt people. God has been patient and loving with each of us, even when we don’t deserve it. A transformed heart, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, will be towards others as God is to us. In heartfelt understanding, and appreciation for God’s goodness to us, we will sow the fruit of the Spirit to those who have not yet received the love of God. What they do with it is up to them.

Consider: Our responsibility is to sow His love, regardless of another’s response. Then you can be assured that you are sons of your Heavenly Father.
