God's Sticky Notes................
"I tell you, love your enemies.
Help and give without expecting a return.
You'll never—I promise—regret it.
Live out this God-created identity
the way our Father lives toward us,
generously and graciously,
even when we're at our worst.
Our Father is kind; you be kind.
"Don't pick on people,
jump on their failures,
criticize their faults—
unless, of course, you want the same treatment.
Don't condemn those who are down;
that hardness can boomerang.
Be easy on people;
you'll find life a lot easier.
Give away your life;
you'll find life given back,
but not merely given back—
given back with bonus and blessing.
Giving, not getting, is the way.
Generosity begets generosity."
Luke 6: 36-38 (The Message)
