Dear President Trump

Loving My Enemy

Dear President Trump.  A man once asked Jesus to summarize all the law and the prophets.   Not 10 commandments.  Not 6 actions required. But simpler, more streamlined for our modern times.  Jesus obliged him by summing it up in two commands.  1. Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.  2. Love your neighbor as yourself.  I actually have a hard time getting all 10 commandments in order.  And it took me a long time to keep the 6 required actions straight.  But loving God, neighbor and self is easy to remember.  But, dear enemy, so very, very hard to do. Frankly, I am not feeling the love from you or from Congress.  I notice neither you nor Congress even try to defend your actions with reference to love of God or neighbor.  You seem fixated on making “America” great.  While you claim God’s special blessing on our nation, I don’t remember Jesus mentioning the good old US of A.   Even Jeremiah disparaged those who chose personal and national greatness over love of God and neighbor. “I will [e]pronounce My judgments on them concerning all their wickedness, whereby they have forsaken Me and have [f]offered sacrifices to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands.”  I fear you have too long worshipped the works of your own hands.  I pray not.  12 17 17
