Mt. 5:43-48 "Love for Enemies"

Sermon on the Mount

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

This is section nine (the last in chapter 5) of The Sermon on the Mount. The title of this one is I Love Him...I Love Him NOT, (Matthew 5:43-48). Oops! That is the title of the sermon I just linked to. lol. Oh well. Have a blessed day.

Love for Enemies

43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Just a note: there is more of the Sermon on the Mount, but this is the end of chapter 5. The Sermon goes up to Mt. 6:24.
