- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! There is so much contention in our world today. How can we follow Christ’s command to love our enemies?

Scripture

For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another.3 Nephi 11:29

Quote

For generations, Jews had been taught to hate their enemies, and they were then suffering under the domination and cruelties of Roman occupation. Yet Jesus taught them, “Love your enemies” and “do good to them that … despitefully use you.”Dallin H. Oaks
