"By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
This verse is awesome, but actually makes me feel quite guilty sometimes. In the spirit of honesty and transparency here (and not just letting you see my "perfect" *cough cough* side) I'd like to say that I'm not who I want to be. In Christ it's a delicate balance of relying on Him for strength, yet still holding myself accountable. Just because there's forgiveness for sins, doesn't give me liberty to sin willfully!
I have the type of personality that can be quite unloving at times. I have the tendency to brush aside feelings and think a little too "cut and dry." And loving people is a bit hard for me sometimes! I'm talking about those people who get on my last nerve and irritate (whether intentional or unintentional). It's so tempting to just float through life never showing love, compassion or feelings for anyone. But that's not good enough! How will people know I'm a Christian if I don't have love?
Anyway, something I'm working on.
Do you struggle with this? How do you show love to those around you who are not your favorite people?
