MORNINGTIME 2798
 
But love ye your enemies, and do good (to them), 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. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Luke 6:35-36. And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; AND THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF. Luke 10:27. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BLESS THEM that curse you, DO GOOD TO THEM that hate you, and PRAY FOR THEM which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matthew 5:43-44. But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And WHO IS MY NEIGHBOUR? And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him , and departed, leaving him half dead. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, HE THAT SHEWED MERCY on him. Then said Jesus unto him, GO, AND DO thou LIKEWISE. Luke 10:29-30,36-37. It would appear that we are to Love Saved and sinner, alike. We were ALL sinners, and Christ died for us, anyway. So who out there are we allowed to ignore because they are unloving to us? If every single person you meet today is a potential Believer, who are you allowed to ignore and pass by because they don't Love you first? This Love even goes as far as giving your enemy a cup of cold water, EVEN AS THEY WANT TO SEE YOU DEAD. When you are "armed to the teeth" with the Knowledge and Understanding that NO ONE out there can harm you, (unless it goes through the Throne Room first), who is there to fear or shy away from first? Christ ministered to ALL He came into contact with, He turned none aside. Sounds like a GOoD Way to start your day, that they may, Be Blessed.
