Ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
When a person becomes a Christian they receive a new nature that loves others even when they are unresponsive or unlovable. God’s love is that way too. He loved us when we were sinners and away from Him. His love went all the way to Calvary, and on into death. And He still loves us even when we do wrong and commit sin. His nature is now ours and our love can go out to others even in the most trying situations. Some things we learn by reading, some things by listening. To love, we learn from God Himself. And His lessons bring great reward.
