Stand, and give light to everyone in the house. The world will see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
“But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:44-45).
“Do not repay evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone” (Romans 12:17-18).
No matter how difficult it may seem to pray for someone who hurts us, it’s always the right thing to do.
