Loving those who do not deserve it is more than challenging.
Think about how God must feel when He continues to give and receives nothing in return. Worse yet, how does He feel when we blatantly reject His love pursuing our own selfish desires?
An old Swedish Proverb says, “Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.”
When we show an unconditional love, especially to those who deserve it the least, two possibilities occur: 1) We demonstrate a God-like spirit, and 2) We help those who really need it understand the nature of God’s love as seen through us.
Lead in love!
