You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you – Matthew 5:43-44

In 1940, when the United States had yet to declare war on Nazi Germany, Charlie Chaplin released The Great Dictator, a comedic skewering of Hitler and his regime. While Chaplin is known as a master of slapstick comedy he was also passionate about exposing the evil he saw in the world. While this incredible speech was made in response to the horrors of antisemitism and the spread of Naziism in Europe during World War II, everything Chaplin says can be applied to the world we live in today. His plea for all humanity to rise up against hatred, war, and suffering to spread love and joy throughout the world is a message that has rung true through the centuries. Jesus calls us to love our enemies. What would this world look like if we really did that?
