“Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back.” (Lk, 6:30)
While it is true that we are in the season of giving, the Lord’s challenge to us in Luke’s Gospel is probably not what we had in mind. Sure, we are willing to spend our money on gifts for the ones we love, and hopefully, if we are able, we offer some of our treasure to those most in need. But to those who have wronged us? That’s a more difficult proposition.
