Praying from Matthew 5:47 relating to Love, Inclusion, Equality.
Dear God, help me to be a person who goes beyond just greeting my friends. Show me how to love and serve others, even those who may not be my friends. Help me to be a light in the world and to show your love to everyone I meet. May I never be content with just doing what everyone else does, but strive to be more like you every day. Amen.
Verse: If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same?
This is a Command. The verse is commanding the reader to go beyond greeting only their friends and to show kindness and love to all, even those who may be considered enemies or outcasts.
