Mt 5:43-48

This final antithesis might be considered the most challenging. This is the standard set by God. It is human nature to love those who love you. God does not limit his love. He loves those who do good and those who do not in the same way. Jesus commands his disciples to do the same so that their love will draw others to relationship with the one who loves them the most.

Your ways challenge me. That’s the point, isn’t it? Help me to accept that challenge knowing that with you all things are possible.
