Pew Leaflet 19 February 2017

If we really want to “be perfect as God is perfect” we must learn to love our enemies. This means that it’s not enough to just refuse to retaliate. We must also seek the best for those who hurt us. And, if doing this makes us like God, we can’t even find refuge in the idea that God will “get them” for us. We are asked to love our enemies because that’s how God loves! It’s not often that you hear holiness (or perfection or maturity) defined as loving your enemies, but that’s exactly what Jesus does. So, if we want to be holy, we’d better start

learning to love in this radical, transforming way. What enemies need you to learn to love them today? (Sacredise)
