I really want to love the people in my life that are harder for me to love.
You know, what the Bible calls my "enemies."

Enemies makes it sound so extreme but I do have people that I don't get on with as well as others. People who are annoying. People who say they will do something and don't do it. People who cut me off on the road.

Work it IN me O God so that I can work it OUT of me. I realize this kind of love doesn't come from me mustering it up within myself. I do not love them because I want to be a good person, but because I believe the kind of love that you talk about could turn this culture upside down.
What credit is it to me?

Change my heart O Lord from the nasty dirty dark hole that it often is and infuse my heart with bright red Jesus love.
