“You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Love your neighbor — and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!”- Matthew 5:43-44, CJB
No matter how cordial a conversation I try to have with some people, the nastiness which comes from their lips is almost horrifying. The bitterness overtakes them and they become like rabid dogs. While others may write them off, I find myself praying for them, praying that they would come to know Yeshua. For if they knew Yeshua, their hearts wouldn’t be so bitter. I know that when I let Yeshua into my heart and started having a real relationship with him, everything in me changed and I became a better person. My whole way of thinking changed. It was no longer all about me, but now all about him. He is what got me through this life; he sustains me. Because of these changes, I am now able to see things in others that I wasn’t able to see before. If he can do this in me, how much more can he do this in them, if they come to know him and let him in.
When you find yourself in a conversation with someone, and it takes a turn for the worse, don’t stoop to their level and return in kind, continue to be cordial. Raise the bar, so they will want to meet you there. Cause them to want what you have. Witness to them, pray for them every day. Pray they come to know Yeshua and let him into their heart. Continue to be that light for them. The love of Yeshua can change everything for them.
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
