Love All The Time

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you (Matthew 5:44 NKJV)

And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:47 – 5:48 NKJV)

But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. “And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same (Luke 6:32 – 6:33 NKJV)

Love all the time
When it’s difficult
And when it’s hard

Love all the time
When the sun rises
And when the sun sets
When it’s raining
When the sun is at its peak
And when it’s dry

Love all the time
Through pain and disappointment
Accepting the flaws of others
And overlooking hurt
And insults
And weaknesses

Love always
Without conditions
And expectations
That is how Christ loved us
He loved us
Even with our
Weaknesses, imperfections
And ingratitude

The greatest love is truly revealed
When the recipient
Of that love
Has nothing to offer
And can’t pay us back
Even the pagans
Love those who love them.
