Give to the One Who Begs From You

Desiring God’s Jon Bloom writes about Matthew 5:42, “Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.”

There is something about such over-the-top, radically generous love that is so different from the way the world loves that it reflects the Father’s love for sinners. It’s why Jesus calls us also to costly love. It is both an expression and picture of the gospel.
