We all have people in our lives who “make it hard to love them”. Some people are easy to love and embrace your love and willingly love back. Some people are guarded and make it more difficult. There are times when I think…Maybe I should just stop trying or “walk away”. There are times that I have done this in my life. There times when it is very clear that God wants me to keep trying and reaching out and loving those who make make it so hard.
“God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8
If we wait to Love others until they get their act all together, if we wait until they deserve to be loved – we will have a loooong wait. If God can love me and and if God can love you in spite of our imperfections – then we can love others, even the challenging ones.
So the first step I take to” loving the unlovable” is remembering Gods love and the love from my friends and family for me when I am unlovable. (true story)
