We live in a competitive world, one that fosters an ‘us against them’ mentality. It’s easy to view life in the context of a zero-sum game. ‘Get yours or someone else will’ is the way of this world, and we fall into the traps of indulging our adversarial conflicts. Evil exists and we must battle it every day, but we must do so with love and compassion. We must be a reflection of His grace, even to those who mean to do us harm.
“Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.” – Luke 6:28 NLT
