Loving our enemies doesn’t require the right feelings of niceness or generosity. It requires that we commend them to the one who has perfected the love of an enemy. It requires being in the prayerful presence of a God who was killed by God’s enemies and then, rather than retaliation, rather than violence, rather than an eye for an eye, Jesus said, “Forgive them.” – Pastrix, Nadia Bolz-Weber
