Opportunity or Obligation?
As a Christ – follower, I am called to love my enemies.
This means that whenever somebody comes up to me and curses me, yells at me, and spits on me (both figuratively and literally), I am supposed to love them.
I have been struggling with this because it is so difficult for me sometimes. But God revealed something awesome to me today…
The more somebody “hates” you, the bigger opportunity you have to work on loving EVERYBODY. The more difficult it is, the easier it is going to be next time…and the closer you get to being able to understand how to love everyone.
So, next time you are having a hard time, look at it as an opportunity NOT an obligation – it is happening for a reason.
What are you going to look at as an opportunity instead of an obligation this week?
