Read Luke 6:20-31


Read Luke 6:20-31

20 Jesus looked at his disciples and said,
“Happy are you poor;
the Kingdom of God is yours!
21Happy are you who are hungry now;
you will be filled!
Happy are you who weep now;
you will laugh!
22 “Happy are you when people hate you, reject you, insult you, and say that you are evil, all because of the Son of Man! 23Be glad when that happens, and dance for joy, because a great reward is kept for you in heaven. For their ancestors did the very same things to the prophets.
24“But how terrible for you who are rich now;
you have had your easy life!
25How terrible for you who are full now;
you will go hungry!
How terrible for you who laugh now;
you will mourn and weep!
26 “How terrible when all people speak well of you; their ancestors said the very same things about the false prophets.
(Matt 5:38–48; Matt 7:12a)
27 “But I tell you who hear me: love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, and pray for those who ill-treat you. 29If anyone hits you on one cheek, let him hit the other one too; if someone takes your coat, let him have your shirt as well. 30Give to everyone who asks you for something, and when someone takes what is yours, do not ask for it back. 31Do for others just what you want them to do for you.


" for joy, because a great rewards is kept for you in heaven."
- Luke 6:23
When last did you dance for joy?


Fill me with joy.
