Love Your Enemies
We’ve started a four-lesson study on the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5–7. Jesus spoke these lessons to a bunch of people nearly 2,000 years ago, but the truths he spoke remain relevant and important to our lives today. Jesus delivered bold truth about how to engage these life issues, and he practically addressed how to handle them.
In our first lesson, we discussed Jesus’ specific instruction in Matthew 5:43-48 on how to handle our enemies and those who’ve harmed us. Through this lesson our students learned that God gives us specific instructions for how to handle our enemies.
We challenged our teenagers to practice praying for and blessing those who’ve wronged us.
As you go throughout the week, help reinforce this teaching in your teenager’s life by asking the following questions as you have the opportunity:
As you walk with your child and pray for them this week, remember: Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other (Romans 12:10).
Prayers for your family this week!
