Top things we talked about:
Today's Bible Society Verse of the Day is Matthew 5:44 - "But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!"
When someone does something to hurt you the human reaction is that it hurts and you want to get back at them but in this verse God tells us how he wants us to deal with them; love them, and pray for them. That's one of those things that sound good in principle but the reality of that when you're in the situation is actually really hard. You may have heard the saying "it won't happen overnight but it will happen"... so we keep practicing, and when you get to that place when you are loving on others and when you're praying for them and forgiving them, it really makes your life a whole lot less stressful.
