If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that. “In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you. (Matthew 5:46-48 MSG)
It is so easy to only help and encourage those who we like. The people that irritate, reject, or are nasty mean are easier to ignore than to embrace. When trouble comes their way it is easier to simply say, “they deserved it”, rather than reach out to them to bring healing.
Today we will be short, yet uncomfortable.
Go out of your way today to SHOW the love of Jesus to a person who has been unlovely to you!
That is right, I said, “SHOW.” Do something, say something, that will encourage, strengthen, and build up that individual. This truly shows love like our Father. He loved us when we were still rejecting Him, yet He never stopped loving.
Be Jesus to someone TODAY!
