Romans 5:5 ” And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who He has given us.”

It’s easy to love those we have a natural affinity for.  It’s not hard at all to love our family and those close to us.  Nor is it difficult to love those we’re naturally attracted to.  But what about those who are like sandpaper against our soul?  What about the unlovely of the world…the disagreeable, repugnant, and unpleasant people who God has called us to love regardless?   For Jesus didn’t add any exceptions when He told us to, “Love one another.”  But when we have the love of God…the unconditional, Agape, love within, we are able to look beyond the exterior and love the unlovely.
