Building on a Firm Foundation, Wednesday Evening

Part of our Gospel Reflection this evening draws on Matthew 5:44, where Jesus is building up to His great statement of hopeful expectation and standard of living for His followers: Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.  Good fruit is produced by good trees – we can’t fake perfection.  But from who we are inside, the “me” that God has made me, proceeds love for enemies, good treatment toward haters, blessing for those who curse us, prayer for those who treat us badly.

How we each treat others is a reflection of, or the fruit of, who we are – it should not be a reaction based on what we’re receiving from others.  This evening we could consider this, as we reflect on God’s will being done on earth as in heaven.
