Sons and Daughters
Luke 6:35-36 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. #Bible
This is the beauty of being a Christian, we live in the freedom, the clear conscience to Love even our enemies. Doing good to others feels good, it is absent of stress, it produces joy and peace. When we lend with the attitude of not expecting anything in return, we glorify God, and what we lend, if not repaid becomes an offering to our Father God.
At that point once again, we have no ill feelings, or strife, or even stress. We just Praise God for His Blessings that have provided us with the ability to lend in the first place. We will be just like our Father in Heaven, and He rewards us greatly even, as we realize we are acting as the sons of the Most High, our Father God.
God in His Rich Love, is even kind to the ungrateful, and the evil as also we should be, why? Because to be at peace with everyone is the path of least resistance, and it is imitating our Father God as Sons and Daughters of God, and that’s just the way we act.
Oh, being Merciful, because we need so much of this Mercy from our Father God. Our Father God recognized just how much we need, that He sent His Son Jesus the Christ as a sacrifice for the extreme amount of Mercy we need. Not only to die on the Cross, but to live a perfect Life in our place, that Jesus credited to us by His death on that Cross.
The least we can do is to show Mercy to our neighbors, again demonstrating that we are the Sons and Daughters of the Most High, our Father God.
