Today’s reading is so appropriate for today! I am so weary, seeing tempers flare. Matthew writes of loving everyone, friend or foe! We are so blessed to live in a society of freedom, and that gives us opportunities to speak our hearts. Yet, some take comments personally – friendships and families break apart, and some no longer love their friend and their enemy. Where is the love of Christ in that? Jesus tells us to be perfect, just as our heavenly Father is perfect! So, this lent may be a good time to fast from gossip, judgment and hate, and feast on brotherly love, patience and understanding. God bless you all!
