Daily word for 24 February 2017 – Matthew 5:46-48
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from Matthew 5:46-48 (NIV):
46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
As a Christian we cannot simply act like unbelievers do and think that we can only show love to the ones that show it back. No, as a Christian we need to be like Jesus and even love the ones that don’t love us back. Let your life be guided by Jesus and not the world!
