SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/20/15- “Love My Enemies? Loan Them Money Without Expectation Of Being Paid Back, And With Compassion? Wow!” (Luke 6:35-36)
Premise Question: Is the reward from Heaven, the one that’s given to those who do what The LORD requests, not just suggests, of them to do, when considering how to deal with and treat their enemies, enough, and worth the trouble, testing, trials and tumult, that they may have to endure and go through, when choosing to show love and compassion, in spite of all the difficulties, toward their enemies?
“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. (Luke 6:35-36 NLT)
You have enemies? Everyone does! They may be individuals you’ve been close to in the past, but because of entanglements, misunderstandings, unfulfilled expectations, hurtful words, actions or behaviors, that has now resulted in estrangement, from one another, your fault, their fault, somebody else’s fault, does it really matter? No, not a bit, when it comes to how The LORD desires for us to treat our enemies. Treat them with kindness and humility. Giving to them when they are in need. Doing kind acts of generosity, without any expectation of getting anything in return; for when you choose, and are able to do this, with The LORD’S enabling, of course, you qualify yourself for a reward and recognition from Heaven that is beyond your imagination and comprehension; And, you will be showing everyone, that you are acting just like a child of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, who, by the way, is continuously showing His gracious favor and kindness to those who are forever ungrateful and utterly incorrigible. You, a member in good standing of The Company of The Redeemed, must take your lead from Papa God, which is, to be as compassionate as He is, towards others, even your enemies. (Luke 6:35-36 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Yes! The reward from Heaven is more than enough and worth every difficult person and difficulty we may encounter or have to endure; for all of Papa God’s promises are faithful and true! If we do what He has asked us to do, then He will do exactly as He says, and what He promises, He will do! And that, for our ultimate good and benefit! He will reward, He will restore, He will redeem, He will renew, He will refresh, He will reclaim, He will reconcile, He will regenerate, He will reveal, He will rejoice and sing over us, for we are His children, the children of The Most High!
