“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.” Luke 6:32. Christian love is not motivated by what we get in return. It isn’t prompted by a desire for affection and praise, understandable as that may be. No, the believer is under orders from God to love unselfishly with no thought of what’s in it for him or her. We are to show concern even for our enemies and for those who don’t respect us. Real love is helping someone for Jesus’ sake, even though he can never return the favor.
