For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have? (Matthew 5:46) - Daily Bible Reflections June 14,2016

“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” – Matthew 5:44
     “If you’re horrible to me, I’m going to write a song about it, and you won’t like it. That’s how I operate.”
       I couldn’t help chuckling when I read this quotable quote from young, beautiful singing sensation Taylor Swift.
       I am a writer. I blog. And I admit, I am sometimes tempted to operate like Taylor Swift says she does. You know — when people do horrible things to me, I feel like writing something they won’t like.
       I’ve had my share of rejections and persecutions. I get angry. I weep and gnash my teeth. I rant to someone who would empathize with me, take my side. I rant and rant before God.
      And then, I somehow hear today’s reading: “Love your enemies.” I roll my eyes and rant some more — that what God is telling me to do is not that easy.
     But at the end of the day, all I do is this: write — not my actual rantings — but just how I rant.
    And well, I pray today’s Psalm 51… Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love… Cynthia U. Santiago (cusantiago@gmail.com)
Reflection: For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have? (Matthew 5:46)
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)
St. Albert Chmielowski, pray for us.
