“Love Your Enemies,'You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
Matthew 5:43-45 ESV
“If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
Luke 6:32 ESV
Is this the way we love? Is there something that makes us seem different to the world or do we fit in with the world? Do we love our enemies? Let's not kid ourselves and say that we don't have any enemies. So, do we love them? Do we offer the hand of Christian fellowship? Are we forgiving as we have been forgiven? Or do we find ourselves behaving as sinners?
