But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High,  because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. [Luke 6:35-36]

God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners Christ died for us. [Romans 5:8]

Jesus brings us full circle on the challenging issue of loving our enemies. Why should we do it? Because He did. This is God’s way. It must also be the way of God’s people.

We love because He first loved us. [1 John 4:19]

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, You loved unconditionally. Help me to do likewise. Amen.
