when all is well, this verse is easy smeasy. when someone slaps me in the face i'd like to pretend this verse doesn't exist. hmmph.
Love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person. If someone slaps you in the face, stand there and take it. If someone grabs your shirt, giftwrap your best coat and make a present of it. If someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live generously.
Lord please help me to love, love, love especially when i don't want to.
