Jesus & Enemies

Jesus said, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”  

That sounds nice but it is not realistic. How do you love the friend who betrayed you? How do you love your ex who stabbed you in the back?  How do love the boss or coworker who has gone out of his/her way to make your life miserable? How do you love the person whose spread lies about you? How do you love your enemy? Or better yet, why love my enemy?!

What is at the heart of Jesus’ command and how do we live it out today?
