John 10:10 NASB "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."I find myself in a quagmire, I know I am supposed to pray for my enemies but there are times I want to ring their necks!! Today's verse speaks about the thief coming to steal, kill and destroy but Christ came to bring life and the fullness of that life! Recently a thief came and stole my bike! My first reaction was wanting to find him/them and get even but rather than let them destroy my peace, I had decided to pray for them! (easier said than done). Our human nature always wants to get even but when we walk by the Spirit, we can let go of those feelings and realize what's important. I am still alive, I have family and friends that love me, and I can always replace the bike! Keeping things in perspective means living God's Word not just reading it or speaking it!! Praying that you have life and it is abundantly filled with the love of Christ and prayers for your enemies! peace, tom
