So God loves us so and we should love him in return. But what about loving other people, our friends, family, neighbours, strangers etc?

Yes, God needs and wants us to love them too. God loves everyone, no matter who they are or what they may have done, and He expects and needs us to loves everyone just as much as He does.

Does that include people we don’t know, and those who have maybe done deeds so terrible we can’t bear to think about them? Yes it does – God loves the unloveable as so should we.

Leviticus 19:18 (NIV)

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

God doesn’t tell us it will be easy to loved everyone, but as always He promises to help us – God will help us to do the impossible, and in this case it is to love the unloveable.
