Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Knowing that we are all children of God can help us follow Christ’s admonition to love our enemies.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.—Matthew 5:44
Knowing that we are all children of God gives us a vision of the worth of others and the ability to rise above prejudice.—Dallin H. Oaks
