Daily Word Of God

Luke 6:27-31, 36-38

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I say this to you who are listening: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who treat you badly. To the man who slaps you on one cheek, present the other cheek too; to the man who takes your cloak from you, do not refuse your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and do not ask for your property back from the man who robs you. Treat others as you would like them to treat you.

‘Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate. Do not judge, and you will not be judged yourselves; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned yourselves; grant pardon, and you will be pardoned. Give, and there will be gifts for you: a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap; because the amount you measure out is the amount you will be given back.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • As disciples of Jesus, we are all called to love others unconditionally and fully as Christ has shown us.


  • We can live in this way only when we are able to “see Christ in others” constantly and see the connectedness of ourselves with others.  Such spiritual truths will help us appreciate that we are brothers and sisters in “God’s family”.


  • God loves us so infinitely and so abundantly. Pray for the strength to share such love with each other in the “family” and be a source of unity and peace to
