Daddy's Smile - #6321
Maybe there's an area of your life right now that's particularly frustrating, and you've tried everything. You've worked harder, you've planned, you've used every trick you know. Could it be you're missing God's blessing on it? Is there in that part of your life something He can't bless: an attitude, a secret sin, a relationship, a method you are using to go about getting it, an untruth maybe? So often the answer to frustration is not greater effort, it's greater obedience.

Using Your Winter To Win Your Battles - #6233
Discouragement and fear and drifting from God - those are your greatest enemies, not what faces you on your battlefields. This winter is not dead time or despair time. It's get ready time. What you do with your winter will decide whether you win or lose!

Burning in the Bible - a Christian perspective
What's the best way to "heap burning coals" on somebody who has hurt you? By treating them with love, grace, and forgiveness, rather than by repaying them in kind. This is just one of many teachings of Jesus that challenge us to completely rethink how we relate to those who are our "enemies."

Enemies in the Bible: Matthew 5:43-48
What could be more counter-cultural than to love your enemies? To a culture that values justice and even revenge, Jesus challenges us to defy the world and show love even to those who hurt us.

Devotionals : Love Our Enemies
Jesus commanded us to love our enemies, but to fully appreciate this commandment, we need to understand the type of love He means. This devotional examines what this kind of love really looks like when put into practice, and how God provided the ultimate example of what we are being asked to do.

Matthew 5: 43-48
Loving your Enemies. Jesus once again challenges the Pharisees' misunderstanding of the law, and calls for a hard and necessary stand in response to evil, but doing so with goodness and kindness instead of a desire to get even.
