Let us muse again today from Matthew 5:43-45 and the theme of Jesus the King. It is in this text our Lord deals with truths about love and hate. In verse 43 He says you have heard to love your neighbor and hate your enemies. This is the status quo in our culture to hate those especially who have done us wrong. Our Lord says not only to love them in verses 44-45, but do good to them, and pray for them. He says when you do this to your enemies they will see the wonder of the fact you are a child of the heavenly Father. Our Lord says the Father is in heaven sending the sunshine and rain upon His enemies as well as His people. Do not forget the goodness of God leads men to repentance.
