If you don’t love everybody you don’t love enough

 

In love we need to love everybody, same as God loves us the way we are, despite our sinful condition.

If we cease to love, we cease to exist. Without the Holy Spirit we cannot live. So, if you don’t love everybody you don’t love anyone, you know? God gave us Love, eyes, heart, everything… for this purpose. First of all to love Him with all our heart, as we read in the first commandment, and then to make us feel equal he adds: “love your neighbour as you love yourself”.

Who am I to say: “But this man right here is mean, I shall love him not. The other one is a liar. What do I have in common with him?” No, this is not the way it’s done my brother. Love is not like this. In love we need to love everybody, same as God loves us the way we are, despite our sinful condition. Doesn’t He have enough reasons not to love us? However, He makes the sun shine over the good and the bad people and makes it rain over the righteous and unrighteous.
