Love Your Enemies, Silly?!

First of all, lets read from the original place that this saying had been mentioned. Mathew 5:43

43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

I am not defend not attack these teachings, but I will tell you a small story, from which my belief arise!

There was once two students. Both of them had the same school average, 90%. However, in the new scholastic year, peter decided to challenge his abilities and he put himself an average of 95%. On the other hand, Tom said: “My average is 98%, and this is my level. so I will put my self a realistic goal which is 90%. I can not have higher average!”.
Taking into consideration that both of the students have the same mental level. Which one of them do you think will have a higher average? the one who set a higher standard or the one with the normal standard? Of course the one with the higher goal, with the goal of 95%! It is true that he can’t so easily get such very high average, but he will surely get an average more than 90%.

Bake to Jesus’ words, it might be very difficult to love one’s enemy. The person who tries to love his enemy is like the student who tries to have a higher average away from his level. You may not be able to totally love your enemy, but you are surely away from the degree of hating him!
