Love the Unlovable
Sometimes it is hard to love others because they hurt us, betray us, and treat us as if we are nothing but puppets for their use, and over the years of my life I have grown to understand that our selfish natures cause us to do harm to even those we confess to care for.
Nevertheless, God wants us to love everyone even the unlovable. When we give out a little love and kindness it can change a negative situation into one that provides pleasure and benefits to both parties. Love spreads like a deadly virus, its contagion and can change the lives of masses of people, and it only requires one small act of it.
So try to love, who knows what life will be changed just because we freely give out a smile, wave, or overlook the harshness of another.
I found a poem by Mother Teresa that I would like to share, it says so much in such a few words.
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails.
