Love your hater for 8.46 minutes and beyond.
Matthew 5: 43- 48
Oh for the prayer of loving kindness! Pray with compassion and tender loving care for all God’s children wherever they are or whatever they are doing; whether friend or enemy. Breathe the breath of communion; the drawing-in of all God’s children, as a hen gathers her brood.
He allows His sun to shine on good and bad alike. So why continually block the sun from shining on the brothers?
A world without kindness, without compassion, without love was revealed this past week. It took no more than nine minutes to discover the pain that comes when love is no more, the wounds we can inflict when there is no compassion. Love shut its door that day, darkness came quickly. Maybe we forgot how dark it can get when we lose sight of God. We no longer see his face in each other, a brother and sister in everyone. Now we know that those few minutes were sufficient to open once more the eyes of the world to God.
