“Are there people in your life who are hard to love? Their attitudes, their life choices, or their pride and arrogance may make them hard to love. As missionaries, we encounter many people who are hard to love, but we choose to love them and spend time showing love because ‘[God] first loved us’ (1 John 4:19 ESV). Are all deserving of God’s love? Yes! Do all accept God’s love? No. Do we stop loving others because it is too hard? No. Pray that we will keep loving because as believers and followers of Jesus, we are commanded to love one another. ‘Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God’ (1 John 4:7 ESV).”
