Love The Wicked~Diamonds In The Rough

God stretches our heart’s capacity when He tells us to love our enemies. Loving them proves that we belong to God, for He loves everyone, no matter what they have done.

Love you enemies! Do good to them! Lend to them! And don’t be concerned about the fact that they won’t repay. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as sons of God; for he is kind to the unthankful and those who are very wicked. (Luke 6:35)

We are naturally drawn to beautiful, loving people. Mature love knows how to love those who seem unlovable, those who seem incapable of giving anything in return for our love. This kind of love is heaven’s love.

It’s not hard to love those who sparkle~the diamond people in the world.

The real test of loving is being able to love those who are like pieces of coal~those diamonds in the rough who might get us dirty. But if we love them even so~with enough positive pressure from love, one day they’ll be diamonds too!
