Bible Commentary for Luke 6:28

Wesley's Notes for Luke 6:28

6:26 Wo to you when all men shall speak well of you - But who will believe this?

6:27 But I say to you that hear - Hitherto our Lord had spoken only to particular sorts of persons: now he begins speaking to all in general. #Mt 5:44|.

6:29 To him that smiteth thee on the cheek - Taketh away thy cloak - These seem to be proverbial expressions, to signify an invasion of the tenderest points of honour and property. Offer the other - Forbid not thy coat - That is, rather yield to his repeating the affront or injury, than gratify resentment in righting your self; in any method not becoming Christian love. #Mt 5:39|.

6:30 Give to every one - Friend or enemy, what thou canst spare, and he really wants: and of him that taketh away thy goods - By borrowing, if he be insolvent, ask them not again. #Mt 5:42|.

Discussion for Luke 6:28

  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Luke 6:28
    "Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you".We must conceive of the words, Luke 6:27 and Luke 6:28, as having been pronounced with some kind of enthusiasm.These precepts overflow with Love.You have only to meet every manisfestation of hatred with a fresh manisfestation of love. Romans 12:21 and Romans 5:8-10 KJV.

    you can not obey what Jesus said without yielding to the power of the Holy Spirit to enable to do what Jesus said God resist the proud but he giveth grace to the humble
  • MockingBird on Luke 6:28
    It is very difficult to pray for those that curse me and for those that despitefully use me. It can be done though Through pray and wanting to be free from the bondage that these things would put on me. I will not allow myself to step down to their level of doing things. I will go up. In a 5 story parking lot to be able to get out of there you have to go all the way up it to get out !!!! So it is with God My Lord is higher than the despisers and cursers. It does take time to get it done but if you have a willing heart you will stay with it till you do . And OH !!! The freedom and release. Blessed !!! Blessed !!!!
