Love in the face of persecution

What happened when I didn't agree to go on strike

How Does One love in the face of antagonism? And perhaps more to the point, why? What possible benefit is there in striving to love those who hold us in contempt?

Jesus promises blessing for who are persecuted. He said: "What happiness will be yours when people blame you and ill-treat you and say all kinds of slanderous things against you for my sake! Be glad then, yes, be tremendously glad—for your reward in Heaven is magnificent. They persecuted the prophets before your time in exactly the same way" (J. B. Phillips translation, Matt. 5:11,12).
