The Radical Love

The Radical Love….

One of the leaders of the attack on Pearl Harbor in the Second World War was the Japanese commander Mitzuo Fuchida. After the war, Fuchida met a Japanese friend who had been captured in the war and imprisoned in an American prisoner of war camp.

The friend told Fuchida that he had been treated with kindness by an American girl who had brought the Japenese prisoners food and reading material.

Fuchida asked his friend about the girl, why she responded with such kindness to her enemies. The friend told Fuchida her story. The girl’s parents had been Christian missionaries in Japan.

During the war, they were imprisoned, brutally beaten, and finally beheaded in Manila. But before their execution, they wrote a letter to their daughter asking her always to love the Japanese people.

Captain Fuchida asked from where did this love come. He was shown a Bible. It was from that, he gave his life to the Lord.

If this little girl could forgive the murderers of her parents, how much more can you forgive those against you. And what power, what miracles, what breakthroughs will you unleash when you do!

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Luke 6:37

If there is someone in your life that you are still holding a grudge against, forgive them – bless them – & be blessed.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
