    I, like everyone else, have known people like this in our lifetime, whether it be family or friends. It isn't an easy task, but if you work hard enough, a difference can be made. Maybe not with all, but even if it is a few, that's at least something.

    In imitation of Jehovah God, we can hope for good and do good towards those who may treat us poorly. This may bring about a change in the person's behavior towards us.

    We are not capable of keeping the laws of God by our own human merits, but praise God that we have an advocate that gives us access to the Father subject to our repentance of sin in Jesus Name, we are presented blameless to the Father by the Righteousness of His Son Jesus, blood bought and forgiven, a gift of love from our heavenly father.
