    Matthew 5:44-48Amplified Bible (AMP)

    44 “But I say to you, love [that is, unselfishly
    seek the best or higher good for] your enemies and
    pray for those who persecute you,

    45 so that you may [show yourselves to] be
    the children of your Father
    who is in heaven;
    for He makes His sun rise on those who are evil and
    on those who are good, and
    makes the rain fall on the righteous [those who are morally upright] and the unrighteous [the unrepentant, those who oppose Him].

    46 For if you love [only] those who love you,
    what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do that?

    47 And if you greet only your brothers
    [wishing them God’s blessing and peace],
    what more [than others] are you doing?
    Do not even the Gentiles [who do not know the Lord] do that?

     48 You, therefore, will be perfect
    [growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character,
    actively integrating godly values into your daily life],
    as your heavenly Father is perfect.
