Let’s IMAGINE love overcoming evil

Me, standing next to a crop of super weeds.

Good Evening, God

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if LOVE grew like the weeds grow? These weeds used to be ordinary sized weeds. But, I am guessing that Roundup was used on them. And those that survived were the hardiest. And they have flourished!

I suspect that is what happens then we try to eradicate almost anything. Those that survive, are hardier. And as we try even harder to kill them — they become hardier and hardier.

That is why you tell us to “Overcome Evil with Good”. That is why we are commanded to “Love our Enemies”. Because, otherwise we get super weeds, super bugs, and super enemies. Aaah, but the worse of it is — we become like our enemies. Angry, hateful and scared.

So, God, I am sitting here IMAGINING a world in which each believer Prayed FOR Putin. Prayed for him to be enveloped in Your Love. Blessing him, instead of cursing. That does not mean approving of the damage and trauma he is causing. But, it does mean seeing him as a fellow human being. A person that needs Your Love and Your Healing. Just as I do. It means trying to overcome evil with good.

Actually, I am imagining a world in which we pray for those in authority over us. All the elected leaders and the non-elected rulers. Praying for the Oligarchs all over the world — not just in Russia. Blessing people, loving them as fellow humans, tends to soften their hearts. Judging people seems to harden their hearts.

And when I judge people, my heart is hardened. Please, God, help me. Please help us all.
