44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you
and how is this even possible?
and what does it look like
in a culture that views such love
and stresses what?
even when wrong
at being able to assert your way
even when you don’t have much of a way
or even much to say
love my enemies
(dare I name them, even to myself?)
bless those who curse you
do good to those who hate you
(I’m trying, even when they won’t, or can’t, see it)
and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you
(ah, so there is more yet to come)
