you have never really lived until...

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? and if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Be merciful just as your father is merciful. Luke 6: 32-36

Wise words from Jesus. Imagine if we all truly lived the way He told us to. He says to love the person who hurt you. Love the person who hates you and could never love you back. Give to those who cannot repay you. That is true love. Jesus gave us something which we can never repay Him. And then He asks us to give like He does. Think about how different “Christians” would be. How different the world would be if we lived like He wants us to.  Don't just believe, follow.  again something I am striving for. I am a work in progress.
