Jesus Said

Posted on: August 30, 2012

Since I proclaim to love on what Jesus said and did and told people to do, I sometimes need a reminder of what that actually was. This portion of the blog, “Jesus Said,” will be just straight up Jesus quotations.

“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? (Matthew 5:43-47 )
