Jesus - The Gospels - Love your enemies
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
This, then, is how you should pray:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those that trespass against us.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins
against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in
heaven may forgive you your sins.
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged.
Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.
Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Give, and it will be given to you.
Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing."
