Memory Verse: Matthew 5:43-44

Currently I’m reading Matthew, the first book of the New Testament. I’ll be posting a verse or series of verses that I find worthy of memorization. While many people use various translations, I’m from the old school. I believe that any scripture memorization should only be from the King James Version.


  • (Matthew 5:43 KJV) Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

  • (Matthew 5:44 KJV) But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

  • My comments: This is probably one of the most difficult teachings to follow. I can understand and follow the last part about praying for them, but I have a difficult time with the first part of loving them.
