The Lord is teaching and says, “love your enemies, do good to them which hate, bless them that curse you and pray for them which despitefully use you (vs. 27-28). Then he goes on to say “if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them” (vs. 32). Wow, now that’s a smack in the face! Over and over he says “sinners also” (vs. 32, 33, and 34), like as if he’s saying, don’t think you’re good because you can repay a favor, lost people do that much. Vs. 35 goes on to say, “BUT love your enemies, and do good, and lend… and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil”. So the Lord says to love others, pray for them, do good to them, lend to them, and bless them and then He closes it out by saying, this is the way you act like your Father because he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. I can help and be kind to someone who deserves it, respects me, shows gratitude, and is in need… but if they are an ingrate than just forget it. Wrong attitude! My Father is good to me and everyone else even when we don’t deserve it and are not thankful… and that’s how I should be to others.
