1 Chronicles 10-12, Luke 6:27-49
31And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
What really struck me was, “if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.” It is so easy to be comfortable in our relationships and seek relationships that will be easy and fun to maintain. But that isn’t what we are called to do. I want to push myself to love those who may not love me back or may be hard to love, because that’s what Jesus did.
35But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. -ellie
Reading this in the Message version gives me a fresh perspective.
