God is one the most important people in Christian’s lives. He gives us everything from love to understanding and wisdom. He sees us all as his children because we are his creation. Because of us being born as man, we are reluctant to be anything as God is. Christians have the ultimate goal, as to live as God would want us to, by loving one another, being kind hearted, and do all things well by God. 1 John 4:8 says “God is love”, resembling that anything we do needs to be out of love to be like him. In Matthew 5:43-48, God speaks about kindness and love. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:43-44, ESV).…show more content…
His relevance in this teaching shows us that love should be universal. People who have done the worst crime, killing someone, can be forgiven if they ask for forgiveness and try to make their doing right. Other worldviews would see this teaching as somewhat right because it is not our judgement, but someone else, either a higher person of power, a person or a spiritual figure. Muslims see it as right because the God they worship has the power and he shall take care of them. In the Qur’an it says “O mankind! We created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know and honor each other (not that you should despise one another). Indeed the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most righteous" (Chapter 49, Verse 13, Qur’an). This teaching shows us that Jesus is kind and loving. It reveals that he has mercy on those who can even be the worst human beings. “For those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same” (Matthew 5:46, ESV)? God loves everyone therefore, we should love everyone. In Luke 7:18-23, God gives his teachings to two disciples of John the Baptist. They come to him saying “John the Baptist has sent us to you, saying ‘Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?” (Luke 7:20, ESV). They went to him and asked if he was really who he claimed to be and to prove his worthiness.
