And Curse Not

Romans 12:14 KJV
Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

The Bible injunction is to bless them which persecute us. But the Bible takes it further than that, the Bible says, "bless and curse not."

There may be a type of obedience to the injunction that is technical but bears a curse under the breath.
• It may be a blessing that is not heartfelt
• It may be a blessing that is not whole hearted
• It may be a blessing but with the hope of the day God heaps those coals of fire upon their head

The injunction is not to fake a blessing to them it is to be a blessing to them, love them, with a whole heart fervently. It is a blessing that is honest and truthful and with a sincere heart.

That blessing is obedience to the Lord.
