Dear Church Family,
God calls us to love each other and in so doing fulfilling the law. While it might be easy to show God’s love those we already love, it’s very difficult to show love to those we dislike. It’s even harder to show God’s love to those that hate, hurt and abuse us. Yet, that’s what we’re called to do.
No matter how challenging it may be, we are still called to love everyone. While none of us are perfect (always remaining sinners in need of forgiveness), we can do as God asks if we rely on Him.
I pray that we each try harder this week to exhibit God’s love to all those with whom we interact. And that we make a better effort of praying for, and being hospitable to, those that we dislike. It will be good for both of you.
