How do you understand these words from Jesus,

… bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from anyone who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again. Luke 6:28-30

Do you think Jesus is instructioning his disciples how to live in a future arriving Kingdom of God or in a Kingdom that is already present?

Is he telling us how to treat other members of the Kingdom of God he proclaimed, or is this how he wants his followers to interact with everyone?

How do you feel about what Jesus says?

{ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est}
