Love does not expect a Reward!

Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you;
bless those who curse you;
pray for those who treat you spitefully.
If anyone hits you on the cheek, offer the other also;
if anyone take your coat, let him have your shirt as well.

If you love only those who love you, what credit is that to you?

Even sinners love those who love them.

If you do good only to those who do good to you,
what credit is there in that?

Even sinners do as much.

But you must love your enemies and do good,
and lend without expecting any return;
and you will have a rich reward;
you will be sons of the Most High,
because he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked.

Be compassionate,
as your Father is compassionate.

Luke 6: 27-36
