It’s not easy to keep up a positive attitude and treat people the way we know we should. Some of us have co-workers that we’d rather hit in the head than have to be nice to. Others have neighbours who make their lives a living misery, and others have family members who are their greatest challenge in keeping peace.
But there is a way to love people who treat us badly that doesn’t bruise our ego or cause us to cry. We can maintain our own integrity when dealing with those who look at us as a target to throw darts at. We don’t have to like everyone and we can’t, but we can love them and treat them with the same respect that we want from them without being offended when they don’t react the way we had hoped.
How is that possible? By loving everyone with the same love that Jesus loves us with.
Read my article on How Christians can show love and you’ll see that His way is the right way.
