    Matthew 5:45 “so that you may be sons (and daughters) (or children) of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on {the} evil and {the} good, and sends rain on {the} righteous and {the} unrighteous.” The word sons in this verse actually means MATURE children of God, operating in the FRUIT of the SPIRIT.

    Jesus tells us it is easy to be friends with those who treat us nice. Then Jesus tells us to LOVE our enemies, do good to people who abuse and misuse you. Obviously He is not telling us to let people walk all over us. BUT we can maintain a calm, MATURE, secure in Christ, spirit. Then, by treating those mean people with grace and LOVE they genuinely encounter JESUS by seeing Him in us. So by RAINING the LOVE of God and SHINING the SPIRIT of God on those mean people they have a chance to EXPERIENCE JESUS.

    So what do you think?
