I Have Decided: Godly Expectations

Do you have enemies? I believe most of us would answer ‘no’ to that question, but the truth is that many of us do have people we do not like and would rather not be around, even if it’s just temporary. Perhaps the person that cut you off in traffic, the person that voted for the other person, or even your neighbor that always has their dog in your yard. What would happen if you earnestly took steps to demonstrate Jesus’ love for them? It is easy to love the people that we like, but it can feel, at best, disingenuous to take loving actions towards people we dislike, or hate. What does it look like to truly love our enemies?
