Loving Your Enemies – Weekly Inspiring Image

cameroon

Life isn’t supposed to be easy. All of us, in our own way, must choose whether to learn from life’s challenges, or be destroyed by them: love or hate, forgiveness or revenge, life or death. We each face unique challenges. Finding the perfect suit jacket may not be on this man’s list of concerns, but our brothers and sisters in Cameroon face their own trials. One community had their entire village burned to the ground by a neighbouring village. 3000 people were left homeless and without their food crops to start all over again. They were just about to dedicate a translation of the gospel of Luke in their language. As the community were rebuilding their homes, some of them understood Jesus’ words for the first time when He said: Love your enemies. (Luke 6:27) Watch this short video to see how they responded.
