In this sermon, Pastor Debbie asks us to consider if we are willing to accept the truth that we are called to love, not just when it’s easy, but even when it’s hard–to love even those to do us harm.
“‘If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. … But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.’” –Luke 6: 32-33, 35-36
