Showers Of Blessings
And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing;
and I will cause the showers to come down in their season;
there shall be showers of blessing. (Ezekiel 34:26)

And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise. For if you love them who love you, what thanks have you? for sinners also love those
that love them. And if you do good to them who do good to you, what thanks have you? for sinners also do even the same. And if you lend to them of whom you hope
to receive, what thanks have you? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return;
and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Be you therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you
shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your lap. For with the
same measure that you measure it shall be measured to you again.
And he spoke a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his teacher: but every one that is
perfect shall be as his teacher. And why behold you the speck that is in your brother's eye, but perceive not the beam that is in your own eye? Either how can you
say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the speck that is in your eye, when you yourself behold not the beam that is in your own eye? you hypocrite, cast out
first the beam out of your own eye, and then shall you see clearly to pull out the speck that is in your brother's eye.
For a good tree brings not forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For from thorns men do not
gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the
evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
And why call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which
I say? Whosoever comes to me, and hears my sayings, and does them, I will show you to whom he is like: He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and
laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he
that hears, and does not, is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell;
and the ruin of that house was great.
