Praying from Matthew 5:46 relating to Love, Reward, Equality.
Dear God, help me to love not only those who love me but also those who may not show me love. May I not seek rewards for my actions but instead, may I love selflessly as you have loved me. Help me to break free from the pattern of only loving those who love me and to extend kindness and compassion to all, just as you do. Amen.
Verse: For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same?
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to love those who do not love them in return, as even tax collectors love those who love them.
