Have you ever tried to hug a porcupine? A funny and scary picture for sure! I have always struggled to love those that leave me bruised and broken. I am sure that we all have. I recently came across a series of messages from Beth Moore about loving difficult people. One of the keys to loving others is knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that we have an eternal and unconditional love from God. We can love those that don't love us back if we truly grasp that He loves us.
Here is the first part (six parts total each about eight minutes long) of Beth's message on loving others. You can find the rest on You Tube. Such a timely message for me...praying that it blesses someone else also.
