Matthew 5:44 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer:  Bless Whom?  Topics:  2 at end.

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; . . . ”  KJV (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Upon examination of this scripture, we see that we are not only to pray for those who curse us, we are to bless them.  Now that may change the coloring of our lives.  Wouldn’t we rather just hold dark grudges or pitch-black feelings toward those whom we know (or think) are saying ugly things about us and our stance for LIFE?  Sometimes it seems so much easier to dwell in dark attitudes and sticky pitch – which is where dark attitudes leave us:  stuck in industrial tar.  Where is the desire to find the bright colors of life, the yellows, the pinks? 

We also know that only God can rescue us from these inner thoughts and feelings, attitudes.  He often has to be the beginning, because we on our own do not want to even be nice toward those who disagree with us or who verbally tear us down, either to our face, or to others.  So, to bless them?

Yes, bless.  How often do we rail against this?  How often do we dig in our heels (as though in tar) and refuse to be open to this possibility in the positive?  We need help from God to bless those who curse us.  He is the one of pure Spirit who can do what humanly seems impossible.  He can direct us into the bright light of day.

Lord, help us to want to bless those who stand against us and against LIFE as you created it.  Help us to open our hearts to Your Spirit, Your beautiful Spirit of purity without any shadow of the dark.  Help us to want to bless those who are very hard to want to bless.

Topics:  Lord, help us to seek Your Spirit in all things, especially when we need to bless someone we may deem “un-blessable.”
