Bible: Mat 5:43-46

Love for Enemies

5:43You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor 1  and ‘hate your enemy.’ 5:44 But I say to you, love your enemy and 2  pray for those who persecute you, 5:45 so that you may be like 3  your Father in heaven, since he causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 5:46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Even the tax collectors 4  do the same, don’t they?
