All Inclusive

1 John 4:21
This is the commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

Who is the one person that you just don’t want to have to deal with? Who is that one person that just pushes all the wrong buttons inside you? That is precisely the person God calls you to love. Loving those whom you like is easy…but loving those whom you don’t like is hard. This is the type of endeavor that requires dying to self…letting go of what your ego wants…letting go of the need to be right. It takes grace. Ask God for help in wishing that person well. Try it and see if a transformation starts to occur…in the other person and inside yourself. For the kingdom of God will be at hand!
