Text: Matthew 5:38-48.

It is said that if the world practiced the law of ‘an eye for an eye’, soon there would be only ‘one-eyed’ people because we all fall short of the
standards of God! However, we are called upon to love as Christ loved, unconditionally, and even to love our enemies because love is not
necessarily reciprocal.

These are very important lessons. Is there anything you would like to apply to yourself or to do differently? What does love mean to you as a
person and as a Christian?

Lord God, in the name of Jesus Christ, be with me, and teach me how to love and break down walls of hostility. Help me build relationships to Your glory and praise. Amen.
