Thinking about it, is one thing.
Thinking that we can put this “order” in practice is another.
Practicing it is a tough task, a very hard one for the sinners we are. Impossible?
Some men did manage to love their enemies. Some still do. Martin Luther-King, Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Malala Yousafzai, Nelson Mandela and many others.
They could be super-heroes. But they are like us, men and women wish flesh and bones.
So I imagine we should all be able to do so.
I don’t have any clue.
I don’t know if I will ever be able to do so.
I don’t know yet if I will ever be able to forgive the ones who caused me pain.
I feel like I can pray for my enemies but love them the way I love my friends, I am not sure I even want to try doing so.
I don’t even know if this is right for me.
I believe the only way to love our enemies is to see the light of God in every single human being.
Only God can show us how to love our enemies. Only God can grant us the ability to master this task. God is the only one to have the keys. It’s towards him we should turn to understand this nearly impossible equation.
