Matthew 5:38-48

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches that to truly love someone is to love even those who don’t love us. Loving others is a sign that God lives inside of us because we understand that He loved us first and loves us unconditionally.



God created everything. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and that exists was created by Him. Not only did He create everything, but He created everything perfectly, including humanity. He created mankind in His very image and likeness to reflect His worth. All of creation was made just like He wanted and designed it to be. To His delight, God looked at everything He made and declared that it was good. All creation exists for God, is good, and was created to bring Him glory.
