Easy to Love

It’s easy to love those who love you
The devils and demons fill that role
But to love those whom you feel don’t deserve it
Is the real call on each Christian’s soul

For true love is oft unrewarded
At least not right now nor right here
True love finds its greatest triumph
In drawing the most difficult enemy near

If we cannot love God through each other
Then we cannot love Him really at all
For our Father in heaven is most pleased
When we fulfill this singular call

For He loved me when I was unworthy
When I deserved hell, He gave me more grace
When I cursed and abused His name
When I lived life in unashamed disgrace

So embrace those whom you feel most unworthy
Of your kindness, or your loving touch
You must love those who aren’t like you
Of this love the kingdom of heaven is such

Mt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Mt 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

Mt 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
