Loving the “unlovable”

Jesus urged us to embrace those who have been unkind or unjust to us.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Christ Jesus tells his listeners: “Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:43–45).

It definitely seems easier to pray for those we love, those who are close to us, and those who ask for our prayers. When our feelings have been hurt or we are upset with someone, it is tempting to turn away. Yet Jesus urged us to embrace those who have been unkind or unjust to us.
