If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that. In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you. ~ Matthew 5:46-48 (The Message)

God expects us to love everyone, even those who we may think are unloveable. We won’t get a reward if we love everyone, nor should we expect one, as if we love everyone, we are simply doing God’s will.

So no matter how difficult if may be to love everyone you come into contact with, ask God to help you see the good in each of them.
