Loving people can cause you to endure somethings you don't want to. This is what Jesus did for us. Everything that tried to destroy you and condemn you was held back by His love. The greatest symbol of love you will ever know is what Jesus did on the cross for you. We are to be a reflection of His love to everyone we encounter. There are many ways to show and exhibit love to people, but ypu want to show love in a affective way. People may reject your love, and you may have to learn to love them from a distance. Sometimes you have to learn that the way you express your love is not having an impact because that person speaks another love language than you. If you really love somebody, learn when to back back and allow God to deal with them. Learn to humble yourself and acknowledge what you are doing isn't working. Ask the Lord to show you how to love in a way the brings impact. If you really love somebody ask God to show you how to love them in a way that will be affective. What Jesus did on the cross for us was painful, and ugly, but the end result was beautiful. Your love may have to endure some ugly things in order to get to the beautiful parts.
