It's important for us to read and understand God's word because in the Bible it tells us that we can't grasp it on our own. One area that is difficult for us to grasp is about loving and forgiving our enemies.
In a society that tells us to look out for ourselves, it's hard to love and care for others we are not too fond of. But, it is important to love and trust God's word especially when it comes to our enemies.
Below are 7 Bible verses on loving and forgiving our enemies:
