Jesus said, “Love your enemies,” and a Lutheran Pastor asks, “Really?”

In my heart I want to savor my resentments. Because my anger and hatred is special. It’s justified … why each of my enemies clearly deserves … to be hated can feel like a big delicious meal, until I realize that I’m the main course. And because hatred s simply a corrosive form of spiritual bondage, Jesus says, ‘Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.’

Jesus said, “Love your enemies,” and a Lutheran pastor asks, “Really?” And the pastor’s  answer is, “Really.”
