Wow. Jesus asked a lot, didn’t He? Someone curses me, and I’m to bless him—to do GOOD to him? Someone mistreats me, and I’m to pray for him…and not “God, get’im!”? Um, yes. Honestly, I can’t do it on my own power of will. But when we take the time to cultivate the fruits of the Holy Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control), when we practice (because practice makes better) the instruction from Ephesians 4:32 to be kind and forgiving to one another, then it’s possible. The proper response to having received God’s love is to share God’s love with those around us. Unconditional love means forgiving others, doing good to others, blessing others, and praying for others. Even the “others” who try to make our lives unpleasant. It isn’t easy, but when we practice it, we honor our Father in heaven. That makes it worth the effort.
