Sarcasm is something that I don’t generally lack in. I will say when there are those who are seeking to persecute me or bring harm to me, I can tend to run to sarcasm and quips to defend myself. I am here to tell you, that is not what the Lord would have from any of us!
In Matthew 5, Jesus says, “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?” Blessing the opposition is in stark contrast to not only our flesh, but to the world. If we show love for only those that are doing good to us, what’s the difference? Those that don’t know Jesus do the exact same thing
I challenge you today to pray and think about who you can bless today that does not deserve it and is in opposition to your faith. See how the Lord would use that to demonstrate the wonderful love He has shown to us.
