Just the Gospel today
And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
I’m more than a wee bit exhausted after my day today. Yet I am so grateful for a chance to join with fellow Christians and partake of the Eucharist together. Equally, my day is richer for spending considerable time with them afterward. People definitely become more like people once you have shared a full meal.
