What would Jesus do?
Christian Love and Charity
To love your enemies may seem one of the hardest things to do. As a child of God this is just one of the ways you can manifest God’s love to a blind and unbelieving world. The Bible encourages you to love your enemies. God promises to give you the grace to do it.
Christian charity is unselfish. It does not think about what it is going to get in return. Jesus was long-suffering, meek and lowly of heart. He showed mercy to a world that treated Him so badly. If the Lord treated the world the way the world treated Him, we would all be doomed. Jesus Christ went out of His way to become a friend of sinners.
True giving is when a person gives, expecting nothing in return. Almighty God shows mercy to all the peoples of the earth. The thankful, the ungrateful and evil all benefit from His benevolence. The sun never ceases to shine. Year by year, seed times turn into harvest time. The seasons of the earth are constant in their change: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.
Though the world does not acknowledge or thank Him for His Mercy He has promised that His mercies endure for ever (Psalm 136:1).They are new every morning (Lamentations 3: 22 – 23). Great is His faithfulness. He never grows weary or tired of doing good (Isaiah 40:28, Psalm 121:3) and neither should every believer in Jesus Christ. Ungrateful, thankful and evil men should not stop us from doing good.
