Love, Bless, Pray and Give

I'm reading through the book of Luke right now and today I read chapter 6. This passage stuck out the most because I forget this so often and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone.
Loving a chocolate thief
“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them." Luke 6:27-31
I want to memorize this passage so that if I started to think of myself that I'd turn to these verses instead to help me do as the Lord wants me. I encourage you to try and do same.
