'Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.' (Matthew 5:44)

We may not get along with everyone, but we shouldn’t be unkind to anyone. Jesus showed us the ultimate example of loving an enemy.

When was the last time you weren’t at your best?

Reach out to apologize to someone you may have hurt of offended.

Do you have a family member, classmate, or co-worker who’s difficult to get along with?

Focus on being kind to the person for an entire week.

Is someone getting bullied at our school or work?

Stand up for your peer in front of a bully.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf April 2012 “The Merciful Obtain Mercy”

Jesus said it is easy to love those who love us; even the wicked can do that. But Jesus Christ taught a higher law. His words echo through the centuries and are meant for us today. They are meant for all who desire to be His disciples. They are meant for you and me: “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”
