I remember when I was a kid, my elders would say, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” Jesus tells us we must do good to others that do wrong to us - turn the other cheek and love our enemies type stuff. This is one of the hardest things in our human existence to follow through with. It’s about forgiveness and then doing something nice, as if forgiveness wasn’t enough. Jesus commands us to forgive and then do something nice to our enemies.
1. Are you able to forgive someone that has hurt you and then do something nice for them?
2. Why is this so hard for us to do? Jesus perfected it, so why can’t we?
Challenge: Do something nice for someone that has recently mistreated you and then begin to build a relationship with them.
