But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Luke 6:35
This Thanksgiving season (and the rest of the year) let’s live the way Jesus lived. What way is that you asked? A verse in Luke explains I will break it apart:
Love your enemies – our enemies can be anyone we don’t get along with it could be a neighbor, a friend that we no longer speak to or a relative we have had “words” with
Do good – from the Greek word agathopoieō meaning to be a well-doer …
Lend, hoping for nothing again – if someone borrows from you, give it not expecting them to return it, give it as a gift
and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest - When you do what Jesus says, your reward will be great, not on this earth but in heaven
for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil – can we do any less than follow Jesus’ example. He is kind to the unthankful and to the evil.
Have a blessed day,
