STOP AND THINK – If we love people even when they are unlovable, then we provide an opportunity for them to change. (Ken Blanchard, author and management expert)
Wow! How do you love someone who is unlovable? Blanchard doesn’t tell us how, but he points to the benefit there is in doing so. It’s hard to help people change. Arguing rarely helps. Getting angry only makes things worse. But if you were to act toward them in their own best interest (that’s love), you may be surprised at how they might change.
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44). And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24)
