"Give to everyone who asks you. And if anyone takes what belongs to you, don't ask to get it back.
Do to others as you want them to do to you.
"Suppose you love those who love you. Should anyone praise you for that? Even 'sinners' love those who love them.
And suppose you do good to those who are good to you. Should anyone praise you for that? Even 'sinners' do that.
And suppose you lend money to those who can pay you back. Should anyone praise you for that? Even a 'sinner' lends to 'sinners,' expecting them to pay everything back.
"But love your enemies. Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then you will receive a lot in return. And you will be sons of the Most High God. He is kind to people who are evil and are not thankful.
So have mercy, just as your Father has mercy.
"If you do not judge others, then you will not be judged. If you do not find others guilty, then you will not be found guilty. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Give, and it will be given to you. A good amount will be poured into your lap. It will be pressed down, shaken together, and running over. The same amount you give will be measured out to you."
Jesus also gave them another example. He asked, "Can a blind person lead another blind person? Won't they both fall into a pit?
Students are not better than their teachers. But everyone who is completely trained will be like his teacher.
