Reflections for February 23, 2014

Matthew 5:38–48

Jesus shares his ideas about perfect love in this focus scripture – love at all times, in all circumstances. Love when we don’t feel like it, love when we face an enemy, love when we are being persecuted and oppressed, love when we’re tired of being asked. Jesus knows this kind of love because he lived this kind of love. And we are called to do the same. Jesus doesn’t say this will be easy and it definitely wasn’t easy for him, but with God’s help and assurance, we can live lives of more perfect love. Something to think about, talk about, or do: Think about a relationship you have that is not as good as you would like. Without attempting to assign blame, genuinely pray to God for the good of the other person and pray for healing of the situation which has damaged the relationship.
