Luke 6:27-31 – 27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back.31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
One of my favorite songs growing up was “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and the News. It is a very popular song, but for many it is a very difficult principle. Throughout Jesus’ ministry, He showed and taught how, who and why we should love. First, we are told to love the Lord. Second, we are told to love our neighbors (and enemies) as we love ourselves. Third, we are told to do this because the Lord first loved us. Love cannot only change people that we share it with, but Jesus reminds us that as we share it, it will also change us.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
