6For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? Matthew 5:46 Anybody can love those who love you back, those who do what you like, look like you look, do good things for you. But to love as Christ has loved my / our sinful self – that means to love those who hate you, who despise you and want to spitefully use you.
True love is not love we are capable of (selfish love) but TRUE LOVE I that which Christ in us enables us to have just because Jesus is. Because Jesus is we love all – even and especially those we don’t even like. Amen.
