Matthew 5:43~48 "You have heard that the law of Moses says,Love your neighbor and hate you enemy.But I say love your enemies!Pray for those who persecute you!.In that way,you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good,and he sends rain on the just and on the unjust,alike.If you love only those who love you,what good is that? Even corrupt (people) tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends,how are you any different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.But you are to be perfect (mature),even as your Father in heaven is perfect.I am so thankful that God is speaking through me and that he is crying out to us his children to get it "Love" right according to his standards,for God's standards will not change.Lately God is really dealing with me concerning his church and I do plan to keep sharing just what God gives me.For obedience is important to me I love the Lord and desire to please him.
Love in Christ Pat
