Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) …Since you are children of a perfect Father in heaven, you are to be perfect like him.”
Beloved, love like Me. Refuse to allow bitterness, resentment, or pride to take root in your heart. Instead, be perfect – be whole in My love that you might be a vessel not just for receiving, but also for sharing that love.
Refuse to take the bait to love conditionally. Resist the urge to only love those who make it easy. If you aren’t certain how best to love those around you – simply ask Me. Reflecting My heart is the most powerful way to shift the atmosphere. So love and love well, and watch how that life-changing love causes all those it touches to blossom and flourish… including you.
Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) “Your ancestors have also been taught ‘Love your neighbors and hate the one who hates you.’ However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil. What reward do you deserve if you only love the loveable? Don’t even the tax collectors do that? How are you any different from others if you limit your kindness only to your friends? Don’t even the ungodly do that? Since you are children of a perfect Father in heaven, you are to be perfect like him.”
