Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you - Luke 6:28
It takes all kinds of people, indeed, to make the world. In our various relationships, we come into contact with people who wish us well and do everything to nurture and support us. There are yet, others who hurt us with their words and actions. While, it is very easy to be affectionate towards those who treat us kindly, it is very important not to get angered by those who don’t. Instead, this verse from the Bible asks us to pray for those who are unkind to us. It is not by fighting or taking revenge that we can win over our enemies. It is by the grace of our thoughts, words and actions, that we can transform even the most evil people. Not only that, this also is a way to let go of our fears and resentments so that we do not harbor negativity and hatred ourselves.
