I find the below Bible passage to be one of the hardest for me to actually live out:

"But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you."
- Matthew 5:44 NKJV

I am feeling challenged by this verse as I have lately felt frustrated by people at work. I also get upset when someone is rude to me in public. Or when I feel wrongly judged.  So many situations when I want to lash out, but instead Jesus tells me to pray for those people and bless them.  So contradictory to human nature!

How about you? Do you struggle with this? What is a Bible verse that really challenges you?
