luke 6:35


“But love your enemies, do well to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." Luke 6:35


You’re probably thinking; “I don’t have any enemies, so this verse doesn’t apply to me, right?”  *beep* Wrong.

Let’s just put it this way: “But love your siblings, do well to them,” Alright? You all might not have siblings . . . so replace friends or neighbors with enemies.

Look at this part, “Lend to them without expecting to get anything back.” Would you let your little sister take a few pictures with your camera [if you have one, I’m just using this as an example]?  I’m not saying give a three-year-old a $300 dollar camera and let her go outside with it.  I have an eleven year old sister . . . and I don’t often let her use my camera if she asks.



 This verse is saying lend it to her, and expect not to get a reward back or even your camera back. I do believe we should be good steward of our things [which our God’s, just like our body is God’s] and not waste, but at the same time realize when we meet Jesus in the sky [or die, oops, I’m rhyming!], we aren’t going to take our cameras or any earthly thing with us! God will bless us in Heaven more if we give and are generous on earth. ;) 

Love everyone, be generous. God will give you far greater blessings than a camera when you die and go to Him in Heaven.
