“I tell you, love your enemies. Help and give without expecting a return. You’ll never—I promise—regret it.
Live out this God-created identity the way our Father lives toward us, generously and graciously, even when we’re at our worst.
Our Father is kind; you be kind.
“Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment.
Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang.
Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier.
Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing.
Giving, not getting, is the way.
Generosity begets generosity.”
Luke 6:35-38 MSG
So, as Christ is we should be.
Church, be His branches, be His body, by His bride.
In Christ, Beetle
