Bible: Luke 6:27-36

6:27But I say to you who are listening: Love your enemies, 1  do good to those who hate you, 6:28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat 2  you. 6:29 To the person who strikes you on the cheek, 3  offer the other as well, 4  and from the person who takes away your coat, 5  do not withhold your tunic 6  either. 7  6:30 Give to everyone who asks you, 8  and do not ask for your possessions 9  back 10  from the person who takes them away. 6:31 Treat others 11  in the same way that you would want them to treat you. 12 

6:32If 13  you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners 14  love those who love them. 15  6:33 And 16  if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 17  sinners 18  do the same. 6:34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to be repaid, 19  what credit is that to you? Even sinners 20  lend to sinners, so that they may be repaid in full. 21  6:35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing back. 22  Then 23  your reward will be great, and you will be sons 24  of the Most High, 25  because he is kind to ungrateful and evil people. 26  6:36 Be merciful, 27  just as your Father is merciful.
