Dear John:

44  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;  45  That ye may be the children of  your  Father which
is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and
sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  46  For if ye  love  them which
love  you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  47  And
if ye salute  your  brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not
even the publicans so?  48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as  your  Father
which is in heaven is perfect.  Matthew 5:44-48, Jesus Christ

27  But I say unto you which hear,  Love   your   enemies , do good to them
which hate you,  28  Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which
despitefully use you.  29  And unto him that smiteth thee on the [one] cheek
offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not [to take
thy] coat also.  30   Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that
taketh away thy goods ask [them] not again.  31  And as ye would that men
should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.  32  For if ye  love  them
which  love  you, what thank have ye? for sinners also  love  those that
love  them.  33  And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank
have ye? for sinners also do even the same.  34  And if ye lend [to them] of
whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to
sinners, to receive as much again.  35  But  love  ye  your   enemies , and
do good, 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.  36  Be ye therefore merciful, as  your
Father also is merciful.  Luke 6:27ff, also Jesus Christ.

I just thought I'd share that with you.




+In Christ,


Richard C. August
