It is very easy to love those that love you and never do you wrong. It’s like it almost comes naturally. But what about those that disagree with you, or those who have personality traits that need refining?
Or what about those that wrong you or try to influence others against you?
Others bear with our faults and weaknesses, and it is our joy and glory to test the power of Christ in our lives by loving even those that seem unlovely.
The following verses are some of the most beautiful scriptures in the Bible. These can be ours by the power of God through faith.
