But I say unto you, Love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you. Matthew 5.44.

The aforesaid actions are taken because there is love. If we are fretful, we will not be able to pray for our persecutors. The love in view here is neither due to liking nor to familiarity, rather it is because of mercy. We should never shut up a heart of mercy.

By acting according to verse 44 we may be sons of the heavenly Father, since we have exhibited His nature. Verse 45 (“That ye may be sons of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good . . .”) shows us how liberal is the way God treats mankind. Were He like us, none would ever be saved. Only God can forget man’s evil. Man does not possess the ability to forget evil; he does not have absolute forgetfulness.
