Those of you who have broken away from bad habits can rightly agree with what I mean when I say it's difficult to break a habit. Changing these habits are very daunting. It's a terrible prison. Some habits are minor and some require inner change - a resolution that needs motivation, will power, encouragement from others and constant perseverance.
The gospel today challenges us to walk to freedom by loving our enemies - a change that so many of us need to undertake. With this, and just like with any other bad habit we want to break away from, we need God's grace in order to achieve our goal. Fortunately, God is always willing and ready to help us - there is nothing impossible with God.
Change is achievable. It is possible. We only need to rely on God's unfailing love and mercy along with believing in ourselves that we can be victors in Christ Jesus.
