"Bless them that curse you ..."

In 1 John 3 we are told: "let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth." Anyone can say "bless you" to someone who is not being peaceful or loving, however words mean nothing if actions are saying something totally different.

Hear Christ:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 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; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

"Do what? Be perfect? But no one is perfect!" Seems to me Christ is trying to tell us something.

Love is a choice, not an emotion.
