Verse of the Day: Luke 6:35
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
God commands us to love our enemies and do good to them. For some, these lessons may be harder than others, but if we are grounded in God’s love and mercy, we can move past our human nature and into the spiritual characteristics of Christ. Our heavenly Father has shown us great love and mercy and expects us to be kind even to those who are ungrateful and wicked, not because they deserve it, but because we are striving to live a life that pleases God.
Lord, You show me mercy and kindness when I don’t deserve it and for that I am truly grateful. Help me to be kind and compassionate to all, not because they deserve it, but because I strive to be more like You. Amen
