Jesus in His days on earth, taught us to love without expecting to be loved in return, how so different is our love today compared to this teaching,
43“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
44But I say to you,
love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for
He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?
48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. nkjv
Some Questions to ponder on:
How do you love as a neighbor? Yes it’s so easy to love those nice, respectful neighbors but is that what love, God’s way is?
How about husband or wife do you love one another when you feel loved by each other?
Really this world will be a better place on our way to heaven at last if we can truly love God’s way.
Love is the Fulfillment of the law Romans 13:10b
Christ, as you accept and open your heart to Him today will birth this kind of love in you.
Shared with lots of love.
