On Sunday we looked at Luke 6. Having been reading through some of Jesus' teaching, we zoomed in on this example of his teaching. They are challenging words. Very challenging!
Here's the whiteboard image of some of the things we learned about together.
We love. We bless. We give and forgive. We pray. And this was the point... we don't simply do this for our friends or people we like. Everyone does that - mostly. But when we start to do this for people who we do not naturally like, or who don't like us, that's Christlike! And doing that even with people who hate us, or who we may also want to hate! Jesus challenges his followers to break the mould and live in surprising ways and so demonstrate something of the kingdom of God.
