Luke 6

Click For Today’s Audio


“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.”

– Luke 6:27-31

If we’re honest we will quickly acknowledge our complete and total inability to (in our own strength) do what Jesus is here commanding. I do not know how to love my enemies. I find it quite impossible to do good to those who hate me and bless those who curse me. But I can confess with a clear conscience that I want to be able to do what Jesus here prescribes.

“Lord, help me to be like You! Give me the supernatural ability to love like You love and to give like You give.”
