FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

ENEMIES

“The “Bible tells us to love our neighbors and also to love our enemies, probably because they are generally the same people.”

~ G. K. Chesterton 

My spiritual program makes me look to where I am, rather than where I want to be. I live in the now, rather than the never-never land of tomorrow.

To love my world, I seek to understand the people who live in it. This entails acceptance of those who are different from me. I must build bridges rather than barriers. It is easy for me to talk about loving and being concerned for the starving millions while forgetting to love and relate to my coworker or neighbor.

I have experience with people who are difficult because I lived with my addicted self for many years. I am the key to my enemies.

Teach me to accept in love those, for today, I do not like.
