Love your enemies

Deu 26: 16-19 Mt 5:43-48

The book of Deuteronomy speaks about the rules and regulation one has to follow to live a holy, religious and righteous life. After the Israelites reached the promised land God spoke to them through Moses saying; declare that Lord is your God and follow his Commandments then the Lord will honor you above all nations.

Individually all of us need some  recognition in the society or community. But if we do the same what all others do then we are sure to loose our identity. It is our human weakness to love those who love us, hate those who hate us. Jesus gives us another way to be different than others that is  Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. This teaching differentiates us from others.

The season of Lent is the time to reflect our spiritual life. Consciously we have declared Lord is our God and promised to keep his commandments but do we follow them in our lives?
