You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust. For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
This verses sums up a lot and with this verse we need to think over the last few years and remember that the Black Lives Movment has caused a rift in our nation. Though the attention was good the outcome has not been as great due to actions. Unlike one of my heroes Martin Luther King Jr. Who spoke with love and acted in peace and Love the modern movement does not. With love and God change happens has was evident with King. Today we see a tragedy in actions that hurt the memories and the cause of those who lost their lives and was beaten. I pray that peace can come to our nation.
