Isn’t the Teacher calling His students to mirror God’s largesse in their own lives?
Largesse - generosity or liberality, especially in spirit or attitude.
This is the Father our Teacher knows intimately and - as He points out – everyone in the world already experiences to some degree every day:
He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the
righteous and the unrighteous.
Jesus talks about love to neighbors and even to enemies. Prayers for them and a welcoming heart to everyone! These reflect our appreciation of God’s Largesse to us.
I don’t think Jesus intends to limit His students to the examples He mentions here. Rather, He is calling us to possess a Spirit of Liberality which will permeate all our relationships.
Thankfully, the Teacher always practices what He preaches. His students learn how to live large by observing His life.
The student when fully trained will be like His Teacher.
What example of largesse impresses you most in the life of our Teacher?
