Matthew 5: 46 ” If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?”

I have to make a conscious decision to love one another, for it’s far too easy to be antisocial in this day and age. With my nose buried in my cell phone I can effortlessly avoid people and conversations. And as I become more and more detached and remote, I then sadly reduce people around me to those who either help or hinder my selfish desires, comfort, and contentment. Yes, it’s me that has to determine to love…and not just those who love me back, but those who are unlovable, have hurt me, and even hate me. Jesus said we must love our enemies and do good to them, and it’s only by His love that saved me from my myopic, self-seeking love that I can find it within me to love others and become more like Him…merciful, full of grace, and with a self-sacrificial love like His.
