We live in a society where we are encouraged to treat others as they treat us and to take care of “our own”. We are justified in turning our backs on those who have hurt us or don’t show us love. But what does scripture say about loving the unlovable? In Luke 6:32-33, Jesus calls us to love everyone – even those we don’t deem worthy. God showed us mercy and compassion by sending His only Son to suffer and die on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. Acknowledging this goodness and grace given to us by God, what right do we have to treat others with unkindness? God loves us all equally regardless of our sin and circumstance. Let us lay down our tendency for anger and hatred at the feet of Christ knowing there is only one true judge. Choose love and forgiveness to free our souls to experience life the way God intended.
Luke 6:32-33 NIV
“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that.
