You Can’t Love Your Enemy If You Are Too Busy Hating Them

loveyourenemies
This wasn’t a metaphor y’all.

You can’t love your enemy is you are too busy hating them.

You can’t love your enemy if you are too busy advocating for them to be carpet bombed into oblivion.

You can’t love your enemy if you are too busy calling for their families to be tortured and killed.

You can’t pray for your enemy if you are too busy scapegoating and stereotyping them.

You cannot put others first if you are only thinking about yourself.

You can’t turn the other cheek if you are too busy trying to punch back.

You can’t bless the poor if you are too busy blaming them for their situation.

You can’t be meek if you are too busy blustering about your own greatness.

You can’t feed to hungry if you are too busy means testing them.

You can’t show mercy if you are too busy accusing.

You can’t show mercy if you are too busy demanding an eye for eye.

You cannot heal others if you are too busy looking for new ways to defeat them.

You can’t let justice roll down like mighty waters if you are too busy oppressing.

You can’t be a peacemaker if you are too busy calling for more and more war.

You can’t be a peacemaker if you are too busy creating conflict.

You can’t give freely if you are too busy worrying about who is taking.

poorYou cannot serve God if you are too busy serving money.

You cannot work for God’s Kingdom if you are too busy trying to make Empire great.

You cannot love if you are too busy hating, hurting, fighting, and ridiculing.

You cannot follow the Way of Jesus if you are trying to master the arts of greed, power, and coercion.

You cannot be of God if you are of the world.

  1. Interesting that in blog about showing love to your enemy, you spent the entire piece attacking those who disagree with you. Not in love, but with judgement, guilt and an assumption in each case God is 100% on your side.

    Is that irony or hypocrisy?
