Matthew 5:46-48 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

46 If you love only those people who love you, will God reward you for that? Even tax collectors[a] love their friends. 47 If you greet only your friends, what’s so great about that? Don’t even unbelievers do that? 48 But you must always act like your Father in heaven.

Footnotes:

  1. 5.46 tax collectors: These were usually Jewish people who paid the Romans for the right to collect taxes. They were hated by other Jews who thought of them as traitors to their country and to their religion.
