Love Your Enemies
Bless those who persecute you – bless and do not curse. Romans 12:14 TS2009
But I say to you who are hearing: Love your enemies, do good to those hating you. Bless those cursing you, and pray for those insulting you. And to him who hits you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your outer garment, do not withhold the inner garment either. And give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away what is yours do not ask it back. And as you wish men should do to you, you also do to them in the same way. And if you love those loving you, what favour have you? For sinners, too, love those loving them. And if you do good to those doing good to you, what favour have you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive back, what favour have you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. Rather, love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting none in return. And your reward shall be great, and you shall be sons of the Most High. Because He is kind to the thankless and wicked ones. Therefore be compassionate, as your Father also is compassionate.
Luke 6:27-36 TS2009
