End of Self

We’ve heard of ‘coming to the end of your rope.’  Have you ever felt like you were coming to the end of self?  People are taking every bit of you; your childrenask a little of you; your spouse asks a little of you; your friends…, neighbors…, work…, etc.  Well, in the passage we will look at on Sunday, February 27, Jesus seems to press these boundries.  If you are frazzled or have ever been ‘at the end of self,’ meditate on this passage and I hope you find your “self” in worship.

Luke 6:27-31    “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
