followHim—LIVING THE DIFFICULT DEMANDS OF DISCIPLESHIP

Wednesday, October 22 — Luke 6:27-29
“But I say to you that listen, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also…”

No command has challenged us in the world today more than this one. In the face of Isis and the Taliban and attacks on us, we find it very difficult to follow this one; truth is we can’t conceive of turning the other cheek to those who terrorize innocent people.
But…isn’t this what Jesus is saying? He is pretty direct, as usual, about this…’do good those who hate you.’ How do we live this commandment in an increasingly dangerous and violent world?
