Real People

Jesus said love your enemies. We all know that’s easier said than done, right?

How in the world do you even begin the process of loving your enemies? The following quote offers a pretty good starting point.

“It is hard to make your adversaries real people unless you recognize yourself in them—in which case, if you don’t watch out, they cease to be adversaries.”
From: The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O’Connor

May God help me love people. All people. Even my enemies.
