Sacred Selfie - A New Perspective on the World: Kindness - The EGN Relationship Look: “The Photobomb”

In Luke 6:31, Jesus describes something that our culture has come to know as “The Golden Rule”: Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Fine, until the “other” sucks the life out of us...now what? Then Jesus challenges us to love our enemies. This is challenging stuff, and what does Jesus know about loving difficult people? Ok, the cross is a reminder of a love that reaches all people...even me. How do we learn about ourselves when dealing with the “extra grace needed” people around us?

Blessings,

Luke 6:27-35

27But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. 30Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35But 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. (KJV)
