We have 3 sets of ideal norms followed by the motivation for them. The first set deals with love of enemies, nonretaliation, and generosity without recompense. The motivation:”Do to others…”, the Golden Rule. The second set deals with loving, doing good, and lending. The motivation: “Be compassionate as the Father is compassionate.” The third set deals with not judging/not condemning, forgiving, and giving in good measure. The motivation:”the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.” These are ideal Christian values. They are quite a bit to soak in. Maybe, we should reflect today, and every day, on how well we adhere to these Christian ideals?
