Whether you are a follower of Christ or not, this verse is a good way to go about life in general, in my view. After all, what harm can come to you when you simply show kindness to others? I see it as a win-win.
And just think of the implications of this verse if we all sought to live it out on a more consistent basis. Our world could be radically different! However, while this command (not a suggestion, by the way) from Jesus is simple, it certainly isn’t always easy to follow, is it?
Still, though, we can try. And where there is faith, hope isn’t far behind. 🙂
