Lessons and tables

I’m tired of all these lessons. I’m tired of all this hard stuff. Why do all these lessons have to be hard? And so often? This must be graduate level work here.

If we are supposed to “love our enemies”, to be kind to them, then isn’t that enabling them? Isn’t that telling them that their ugly, abusive, selfish nature is OK?

Why do I have to eat at a table in the “midst of mine enemies”? Anger and strife don’t make for a good appetite or digestion.

But then I think ā€“ if the Lord prepares a table for me in the midst of my enemies, perhaps it means that while Iā€™m in the middle of an unpleasant thing my needs are taken care of. Instead of the food coming first and the enemies second ā€“ it is the other way around. So I need to open up and see the bad situations as a prequel to goodness coming.
