When did God invite you to go beyond what is expected or required?

How did that act transform you and those who might have been touched by your ministry, including people who you might have considered to be your enemies?

This week’s text is taken from 3 Nephi 5:90-92 in Community of Christ’s version of the Book of Mormon.

I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you and persecute you, that ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good; therefore those things which were of old time, which were under the law, in me are all fulfilled. “Old things are done away, and all things have become new; therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I and your Father who is in heaven are perfect.
