John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 6:32

It is greatly observable, our Lord has so little regard for one of the highest instances of natural virtue, namely, the returning love for love, that he does not account it even to deserve thanks. For even sinners, saith he, do the same: men who do not regard God at all. Therefore he may do this, who has not taken one step in Christianity.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 6:32

For if ye love them which love you, (g) what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

(g) What is there in this your work that is to be accounted of? For if you look to have reward by loving, seek those rewards which are indeed rewards: love your enemies, and so will you show to the world that you look for those rewards which come from God.

if:

Matthew 5:46-47 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? ... And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so?

what:

1 Peter 2:19-20 For this [is] thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. ... For what glory [is it], if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer [for it], ye take it patiently, this [is] acceptable with God.
