Listen again to the words of Jesus:
Love your enemies.
Do good to those who hate you.
Bless those that curse you.
Pray for those who mistreat you.
Give to everyone who asks of you.
From the one who takes what is yours, do not demand it back.
Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Be merciful, as your Father is merciful.
Forgive, and give freely.
The measure with which you measure, will be measured out to you.
Jesus asks us to follow the example of Our Father.
Who gives us sinners eighty-six thousand four hundred seconds every day as opportunities to repent.
God’s mercy is endless, like an infinite ocean.
May we embrace that mercy, extending it to our neighbor, our enemy, ourselves, and the world. Amen.
