Bible Text: Luke 6:27-38 |


Some aspects of Christianity are radical. Jesus told His disciples they may face poverty, hunger, grief, being hated and rejected all because they follow Him. Jesus asks His followers to do what goes against our natural, self-centered inclination. He told disciples to love the unworthy, to do good to those who hate you, to not seek revenge and pray for people who mistreat you. Disciples think more of the rights of others than their own. They have an ongoing attitude of giving and loving. Disciples don’t have a critical, dismissive view of people’s failures, rather they are under-standing and compassionate. Disciples overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21).
