Lest You Do

Forgiveness

A stable mind and a deep understanding, who can give me? Minds are cast into a well of chaos and strife, who is there to believe? One must dig deep to find the truth while the world demands that the shovel be put to work on the graves of those that are of other. Lord, you called us to love our enemies.

When I look upon your face Jesus I see not the kind of hate some would prescribe but rather the hate of a loving father. Hate for actions, hate for lies, hate for pride, hate for greed, these you despise. Yet the people! You love the people. No matter what vile intentions or evil idea have taken root in the heart of man you love them.

It is true! Your justice will come and your wrath will be shown but beautiful is the intermingling of mercy and grace in this rightous display. Love your enemies you cry out to your people for they are in danger. Love your enemies, though they perecute you, you are their light. Love your enemies though they belive lies, they can know the truth. Love your enemies because they are my creation and in them is the Imago Dei. Love your enemies though they may never know me, I am pleased when you do. Love your enemies because I am glorified in this. Love your enemies because those that do not know me can never see the light of hope and truth lest you do.
