Jesus ~ Love Your Enemies

(The Passion Of The Christ)

You have heard it 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…
For if you love only those who love you…
…what reward is there in that?

~ Bible, Matthew 5:43-47, Love Your Enemies

Bible, Matthew 5:43-47, New International Version

Love Your Enemies
[43] “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ [44] But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, [45] that 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. [46] If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? [47] And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?
