(missed the first half of love feb so thought I’d try write something for what’s left of it!)
Day 7? 1?

They are but human:

Love is about people.
Love is about loving people who are loveable,
Love is about loving people who are unlovable.
It’s about being patient with the most annoying people.
It’s about hoping for the best for those who are permanently on our nerves.
It’s seen most clearly when we love our enemies.
For if we love those who love us, what credit is that to us?
Even sinners love those who love them.

People are annoying.
People are greedy.
People are selfish.
People are proud. People are arrogant.
People hurt us. Oh how they hurt us.
People hurt others. In their selfish greed, in their lack of kindness, lack of empathy, they do more than just hurt others.

But people are just people.
They hurt too.
Maybe they’ve been hurt before.
Maybe not.
But does that matter?
Can’t we love them as humans?
Of what use are spiteful words?
Unless it comes from a loving heart hoping they change for the better,
Those harsh words do no good to anyone.

To love is to forgive.
To keep no record of wrongs.
To forgive people who don’t even think that they’ve done wrong,
People who don’t even seek forgiveness.


Because He first loved us.
Because He forgave us.
Because He died for us even while we were still sinners.
