You can love people when they’re mean. When they’re at odds with you. When their lifestyle or their background is different that yours. It’s going to take courage, commitment, and compassion, all of which you’ll have to cultivate in some very hard moments.
Prove your love with loving deeds. Love someone who is hard to love. Love someone through a difficult season. Love them when you don’t have words for their pain. Love them when they can’t love themselves.

God knows you. He knows your name, your sin, your story, your past, and all of your pain. And he wants to save you, to redeem you, to adopt you as his very own child. He wants to set you free from bondage, fill you with his Spirit, and bless your life beyond your wildest imagination.
