Love is an action, not a feeling. So love doesn’t mean just choosing to protect, hope and persevere when people are easy to love. It means choosing to protect, hope, trust no matter what.
That’s the kind of love God gives to us. He doesn’t love us just when we’re ‘good’ – he loves us, and was separated from his Son for us, at our lowest and most unlovable moments.
So that’s how we should love other people. Who can you show this kind of love to today?
