John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Regardless to our wrongs, attitudes, unpure thinking, and wicked hearts, while we were yet in our sins, God sent his son to die for us. Now that’s love. Before he came He had already purposed in his heart before the foundation of the world to be the lamb who would be slain to take away all of our sins. In his commandments he admonishes us to love our neighbors, in the new testament he tells us to love them, forgive over and over, to pray for others. What God is telling us is that just like he loved us and layed his life down for us, that like wise we should love those around us weither they treat us right or wrong unconditionally. Understanding that hurting people hurt people, God has allowed me to look past the act and at the hurt and pain of the persons heart. Not to take the things that people do to heart. We all should be thus minded. We are all sick, have been sick and if not for the grace of God would not receive healing that would deliver us from doing, being or acting the same way. And for some of us it is still a process that God wants us to embrace and let what we are going through have its perfect way in us to purge, polish and create in us who he has called us to be. So It is for us to love unconditional, not based off of how someone may look or act. Yes some of the stuff we see in people is unsettling most of the times, But if we would only take a real close look at ourselves we would see we need alittle more varnish too. Love your neighbor as your self, yes your enemies pray for them.
