We are called to love others. Not just the easy ones but also the hard ones. We should love those people who we don’t quite know how to deal with. Those who are broken and hurting. Those who get on our nerves and even those people who are cranky who we sometimes feel don’t deserve our love.
We are called to love everyone and that includes the messy people. Loving messy people sometimes can be scary and sometimes quite hard to do. We don’t get to pick and choose who God gives us to love. We are just to love them as he loves us. We are all messy people at times and thankfully no matter how messy I am God still loves me.
Dear Lord thank you for the messy people you have put in my life because they show me I am messy too.
We love because he first loved us – John 4:19
