Stupid, Ugly People

I think I could take a lesson from my youngest. Hannah said, on the way home from dropping the big kids off at school today - and you have to imagine the sweetest three year old voice you have ever heard,

"I'm not being mean but even people who are stupid (Ummmm, she said a bad word!!) and ugly and on accident they are mean to me, I just like people still!" (Yes, she is quite the little "grown up" conversationalist. Sometimes we're proud, sometimes we just want to get a few words in ourselves.)

And so she should still like them! Granted it took her fifteen tries to get the thought out of her mouth and accident actually came out assudent, the point was made quite clearly. She has arrived at this conclusion much easier and earlier than I!

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48
