I have been spending much time in the Gospels the last few months. I continue to hear Jesus say a number of things that are either being overlooked or neglected. In some instances, I think we have overlooked some things for so long that we no longer even see them.
For example, this week I have been reading Luke 6. I came across these words, which I have read many times:
"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you …"
Now these words are not new to me. Again, I’ve read them many, many times. I may need to ask, however, "Am I serious about living out these words?"
I’m curious. As you read the words of Jesus in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, what does Jesus say that far too many churches and individual Christians ignore or neglect?
